The last few days have been a bit of a waste since I managed to go out two nights in a row til sun up and then sleep the day away. Friday night was particularly bad, getting to bed about 8 a.m. Sat. morning. The clubs just keep going here. We had a great group of people too, but as most everyone else spends 2-4 nights here, that group is now down to a few. Krakow is cracking down on the number of drunken fools in the streets, issuing fines, and they are particularly targeting the British tourists.
Anyway, I did get out in the square yesterday afternoon. So much is going on all the time, between street performers and other festivities that pop up.
Today I hit up another free museum that housed a lot of the Polish traditional attire and chronicled the lives of the Polish. I loved some of the pictures of people in there. Then I hit the Jewish Cemetery, which has one wall made out of broken tombstones destroyed by the Nazis. However, it decided to pour rain so I made a run for it back to the hostel.
I'm feeling pretty anxious to move on though. The bus to Budapest only goes on Wed. and Sat. or else I'd have to take a night train there. There has been much debate at the hostel around the subject of night trains. Having been robbed myself on a night train, and hearing many other stories, I have no interest in taking my chances, but lots of travelers have come through with no problem. In any event, I'll take the bus Wednesday afternoon, taking in a few more sights before I go.
