Where I stayed
Slow start this morning! Then we took a walk around our local area. There are so many beautiful old buildings here. Many of them need a clean and some TLC but the architecture is so interesting! (Actually, even the new buildings often tend to be interesting! They really let their imagination loose here!) There were lots of people in the old town but the square wasn't too crowded. We sat and had coffee and apple pie. Our pieces of pie came out on dinner plates and were the equivalent of two large slices from home. Hate to say it but we both finished our pieces. Our excuse is that we hadn’t eaten all morning! They became lunch! Stopped at our local market, just around the corner from us, and bought some fruit for a light dinner!
We have been really enjoying walking around our local area
We spent the afternoon at Schindlers’ Factory which is a museum about what World War II was like in Krakow and particularly focussed on how Schindler saved many jews during the war. For those old enough, remember the movie, 'Schindler’s List’? I know, museum, boring! Well, it was the most interesting museum I’ve ever seen. I don’t think there was one ordinary room with four walls in the whole factory. It was like a maze of interconnecting nooks and crannies with an endless variety of ways of showing you what it was like. Lots of movies and eyewitness accounts. I was there for three hours!
