We arrived in Krakow in the late afternoon and set up camp. There was a big shopping center over the highway from our camp, so some of us head over there before dinner. We stocked up on Wodka (Claire and I got apple flavor) and checked out what English speaking movies the cinema was showing. We had a big dinner and a birthday cake for Cat and sat around camp chatting and drinking. The next day we head into town on the tram and after our orientation, Claire and I head off to yet another palace and chapel! There were some really pretty gardens in the Palace and we pottered about and then head back to met Mel and Dan for lunch. We all went off to the Jewish quarter after lunch and had a look in the bookshops, trying to prepare ourselves for our visit to Alcherwitz death camp memorial tomorrow. We spent the afternoon trying to communicate what coffee and cake we wanted from a waitress at a cafe. We headed back to camp and grabbed dinner in the shopping center and then went to see a movie in English which was a real treat after no telly for the last month. We headed back to our funky little cabins at Camp Krakowianka and called it a night.
