Friends, it has been a LOOONG day. It all started when I drove to Terre Haute this morning to catch a bus to Chicago with some members of our group. What was supposed to be a 3.5 hour drive ended up being 6 hours as we hit terrible traffic. We would have missed our flight if it wasn’t for our plane being delayed because of the storms around Chicago earlier in the afternoon. On the bus ride through downtown Chicago trying to escape interstate traffic, Eva was telling us stories of how she and her husband met, and how funny it was when she first came to the United States. She also made a comment about how even though our travel experiences had been annoying thus far, that it was nothing compared to the cattle cars of Auschwitz. Believe it or not, she said that lightheartedly.
So here we are in Krakow getting used to the money, the time change, and the strange ways of turning lights off and on in the hotel rooms…that’s another story. We are all exhausted and about to crash. The salt mines and historic Krakow are on the itinerary for tomorrow. Until then, good night!
