Leaving the hostel to get to the train station I decided there wasn't enough time to buy a ticket for the tram. Funny how the guys somehow catch you when you are at your latest. I tried to jump off and blame the 'i don't speak polish thing' but it didn't work. Especially since their english was spot-on. they wanted like 50 euros, which I'm sure is more than they make in a day. told me they were going to call the cops and to make it worse, the train was leaving in 15 minutes. I pulled out a few euros and told them I don't want a receipt. they did some funny salute and I ran off. So my first experience of giving a bribe was accomplished. Well done me.
Krakow does have these delicious bagels and they are sold everywhere on the streets. The first day I was in heaven running around like Homer Simpson in the chocolate land. I ate 9 bagels that day!! I have since cut down on my bagel intake.
