As we got closer to the Poland border, we noticed many tractor trailers lined up along the right side of the road for what seemed to be a hundred of them. That was their line for the border crossing! Sucks to be them! At 9am we reached the border for what we thought would be about half an hour. Little did we know...After watching many cars going through quickly, one car was stopped in the lane next to us. They made the bald driver and his passenger get out and made him unload his entire car! This included a trunk full of endless groceries and Pepsi
We arrived in Poznan about 1:25pm and only had enough time for lunch. Suzi and I went to a bar/restaurant in the square. One thing was that everything was paid for separately like bread and butter. I'm so used to bread & butter coming with the meal. Suzi ordered this and when she got it, she offered me some and I took one slice as that would be it because there were a few slices with MOLD on them! Thank goodness I opted for the smoked salmon salad that had black olives and pearl onions. One good thing was use of the bathroom was free. lol Poznan square had a pretty, colored, long building in red, pink, yellow, blue and green on one side and other colored buildings on the other.
Back on the bus at 2:30, our bus kept stalling out after several unsucessful attempts by Franko
After another rest stop, we arrived in Warsaw at 7:30pm and stayed at the Novatel Hotel. Our dinner consisted of mushroom soup, boiled potatoes with chicken and some type of gingerbread cake with chocolate icing. Not bad.
Bathroom fee for the day- 150 zloty
