Then this afternoon, we boarded a large van (Mercedes) and departed from Prague. This time we were on the road to Krakow Poland. It is about a 6 hour drive. We had a nice young Polish driver - although he did like to drive fast. The country side we drove through was really quite beautiful. Green, rolling hills. Wooded areas interspersed with agricultural lands
One highlight along the way, we passed through Wadowice, Poland - a small, picturesque town that was the birthplace of Pope John Paul II. I am attaching a photo of the church where he was baptized.
Then it was on to Krakow. Krakow is a large, industrial city. The air is hazy. We are staying in a hotel which is not far from the Market Square, which is the historical square of the city. Tonight was once again 'on your own' and so I hijacked my husband all for myself. The two of us walked through the square - which was a happening place to be! Lots of people, lots of roaming entertainers. It was a very nice evening out. Tomorrow we will have an official tour of the square.
