Just a couple of hours in Oswiecim

I did a lot of walking in Oswiecim. I got lost trying to find Auschwitz Museum, so I went back and found the other concentration camp museum. It was huge and looked just like I thought. But I really wanted to see Auschwitz. I asked the gal at information about the shuttle and she told me it would be there around 10-1015am (it was about 940a)...so I waited and at 1020 I asked her where the shuttle was. She left and came back and told me it wouldnt be there until after 11-1115am. I told her I couldnt wait that long, so I began walking. Come to find out, I was about a block away (the first time) from the Auschwitz Museum. When I got there, there was a message saying anyone coming in after 10am had to go with a tour guide...i didnt have time for that, my train was leaving at 1215, so I skimmed my way in through the groups and did my own tour...fast tour :-( but Hey, I've been there, I saw a lot of it. I was really suprised though that it wasnt as big as the other one...I guess that's because they killed everyone in Auschwitz. Dunno.
