We arrived in Warsaw at 2345 and I asked them for my water bottle back for the last time - no good. The alki invited us to his favorite night club so the Nottingham girl was getting picked up by boyfriend so he drove us there. After a few drinks he drove me back to me hostel and we arranged to meet the next night. Had a few beers in the hostel bar before 1am close with the bar man telling me about all the sites and this eccentric women who did tours of the Warsaw Uprising area.
Wednesday 19 July
Up at 9 to get reception to book eccentric lady at 10. In the end had to phone her myself and we arranged to meet at 12 so went for a run around all the non Jewish area sites. Showered and met her in reception where we had a big argument about the price at reception which I found out later was due to the fact that she was Jewish and the Poles hate the Jews
Thursday 20 July
Up at 9.30 with bad head. Everyone asleep so went for a shower with towel (too small) the hostel had given me. When I got back with just my front parts covered all my 3 female room mates were up sitting down facing me. A bit of piss taking and one said I was fit (haven't heard that for a while) and I had to reveal myself to them. Went for a walk round beautiful completely rebuilt old town, the museum on the site of former prison where the gestapo held 100,000 prisoners and murdered 37,000 mostly Polish. Up tower given to the city by Stalin with good views all over the city. Back to the hostel to pick up bag, and started giving money away, gave the receptionist girls a big tip as they'd been helpful. Onto railway station where ticket buying was a struggle with 14 offices so 14 queues. My queue was very slow then closed for a break before I got my ticket with lots of abuse from fellow passengers.
