Kate and I took a sleeper train last night across the Dreaded Passage Way. This is the route from Prague to Krakow Poland. We made it across alive with no instances of the russian mafia gassing us in our sleep and stealing all of our stuff. In fact, we were the only people on the entire train car which made for an extremely creepy experience. Between the old train car and the abrupt awakenings by Polish accented guards demanding our passports, I felt as though I had stepped into some strange WWII movie.
Krakow has proven to be worth the journey, however. The city is beautiful and full fascinating history.
Tomorrow we visit Aushwitz. I am more than a little apprehensive as it's so close to my moms birthday. For some reason traveling has really made me miss her more than I have been able to up to this point.
Well, I must be off. We have an early morning tomorrow and there are many little travelers waiting for me to be finished with the computer.
