Carriage ride for Lia's birthday

(From Lia):

Trot, trot, trot!  It's my birthday and we're in Poland, in a horse-drawn carriage!  It is very beautiful today and the city is bright and pretty.  There are lots of shops.  My Mom got me some stacking dolls, a jewelry box, and a Polska (Poland) shirt.  We saw a giant castle, very magnificent! 

We ate a snack at an outside cafe on the square and I got a vanilla ice cream with whipped cream and peaches on top- it was so good!  We got a view of college kids dancing and two people walking on stilts.  People on unicycles with flags made me want a unicycle!

On the way back home, we got a little lost on the tram.  First, we went the wrong direction.  Then we got stuck on one and it was very hot.  Then two trams changed their route because of a festival and a nice man told us to walk through the market.  Finally we had to walk through the festival to the next tram stop.  Then we missed our bus stop home and walked back to the campground, while two buses passed us!  We met very nice people from England on the bus and on the walk back to the campground. 

This was the BEST birthday ever!  It is so cool to be in Poland on my birthday!
