Get up this morning and have a powerhouse breakfast in the hotel of polish sausages and bacon and eggs.
Then get into our group and tour city of Warsaw.
A very cool day, Warsaw rules! This morning started off with a Contiki city bus tour with our local guide. Although this tour, like most, was excruciatingly boring, I do appreciate them because they always give me an overview of what areas of a city to explore. One of the first spots of the tour was Warsawâ��s former Jewish Ghetto. Currently itâ��s an open park with a monument commemorating these Nazi prisoners. As a history major, I have taken numerous courses involving WWII. So I was able to appreciate these peopleâ��s hardships a little more than most.
Old town is really neat. From here I decide it is time for me to go on my own. Everyone here actually splits up as we been stuck together for a long long time. I walk around old town for a while and then go to a shopping centre and markets to check things out and buy some new clothes as I have not done any laundry in a long long time.
I head back to hotel and have an afternoon siesta and wait a while for supper. In the evening I go down to lobby and meet with Steve from UK and decide on dinner.
Tonight a group go to a Chopin concert, while rest of us stay at hotel. We then join with rest of group and another Contiki group and make it to some old style communist bar. We get to this dodgey backlane style of place and go in. The bar is downstairs and is really neat, there are all of these stripper poles everywhere.
We all get very drunk and end up taking turns on the stripper bars and its lots of fun. A big fun night and quite messy.
I won't go into any more detail of what happened. Ask me later.
We go back to hotel and have to locate one guy, Clinton who is missing and drunk, we find him knocking on his door but his roomate won't let him in, too drunk.
Anyhow, long story short, what happened was CLinton never got into his room, he ended up passing out in the hotel's elevator and slept, while the elevator went up and down all night. Very funny.
Anyhow, thats all for Warsaw, we are off to our final destination tomorrow, Berlin, Germany! stay with us.
