Pero no sabía que en las dos horas siguientes iban a pasar tres de los momentos más estresantes del viaje hasta ahora! Te ayudará a saber que si perdería alguna de esas conexiones no pudiera haber ido a Auschwitz y también que los trenes de aquí son los peores que he visto en Eurpa - muy lento, no ...
