Krakow, Auschwitz and a wander across the border!

... and included a free dinner of meatballs and various salads, accompanied by a Polish vodka shot. After a few movies and organising our trip to Auschwitz the next day we called it a night.

We caught a public bus to Auschwitz the next morning and arrived just after 10am which was good timing as the first English tour was at 10.30am. We started at the main entrance which bore the infamous wording 'Arbeit Macht Frei' – Work will set you free. There were between ...

Our guide was a Latvian guy with a long beard called Phillip, also in our group were some Welsh, Irish, English and French people, a very different mix than we had had previously, not one American. The Welsh couple were a little odd and they spoke Welsh to each other (not surprising) and Mea told me she thought Welsh was a funny language, I have to admit it does sound a bit ...
