it felt good to be in Poland though, as I had been here 4 times before, I felt right at home, and once in Żywiec decided to have polish food and beer, as a reward to all this climbing. Beer is good but it tends to increase muscle pain, and I soon realized the climbing was not over, as the road going around jezioro żywieckie (the lake north of Żywiec), was also a roller coaster. A good half dozen climbs later, and I'm on a straight line to Oświęcim, which you might better know under the name Auschwitz (the German name). After checking in my pension, I headed to another polish restaurant, to finally enjoy some pierogi, after another 80 something kilometers. 5 days left!
Tomorrow I shall of course visit both museum and Auschwitz Birkenau camp.
