I don't like Monday's, they are wet and dank days. Yeh ok so this is Tuesday but it feels like Monday! We have had 160 miles of rain, and when it didn't rain, it tipped it down. We are not so happy bunnies, it is only 18:26 here so the day could still improve eh?
We are in Krakow now, some of the chaps (6) went down a salt mine the other half have come on to the Hotel “Home” it is a bit spooky. It appears to have been an apartment block and in part it still is, we have someone with a dog next door! Familiar noises tell me the lads have just turned up, how pleased they will be when they find the parking is two streets away, underground.
The day started ok, all be it drizzly wet, we set of in smaller groups as the sat nav now works and it draws less attention to us in a small group. It appears to have worked well really, we would “bump” into each other on the journey every so often which at least meant we were on the same road (?). Mike 'C' did not leave until 10:30 but caught us up at 12:30 even though we left an hour and a half before him, the traffic was that bad for us on the main drag what with the road works but he came on the back roads, bright boy that one should go far.
Dave 'K' and the lads are in from the cold and tell me the salt mine while fascinating was to much walking and effort for them, it all got a bit jaded it seems, tired legs and all. They were in there for two and a bit hours and saw only one per cent of the workings, they are 'BIG' caves /mines.
Beyond this it has been a quite day sorry, call back tomorrow after we have been to Auschwitz / Birkenau. That will be a day of story and emotion I have no doubt.
Ta Ta for now, M
Quote of the day “my crotch is a war zone”, I think Dave 'K' means walking in wet leathers for two hours is no joke, poor child, but no one will kiss him better!
