I walked my legs off today. Everyone tells you that you have to see the church. It was really something. The guy in front of me got in trouble for wearing a hat inside. He took it off and told me I would get in trouble for taking flash pictures. That probably saved me being reprimanded by a passing priest.
I met three guys from America on the train. They were from Michigan, my home state. Weird, huh? We talked about how different it was in Europe with the money. They use coins worth as much as $5. You have these coins in your pockets that are worth a lot more than our quarters but you forget their value. Later you find you had a lot of money jingling around in your pockets.
The weather is perfect for walking around. I went down the street to find a restaurant they told me about at the hostel. I’m not sure if it was the one they said but it was a cozy place and the people there were very kind and made sure I had a good experience. The beer was really good but served in a small glass. Much different than England where beer comes in a pint glass.
But the best part is that it is Spring here. I hope you get it soon. I am heading for Poland tonight. Got to switch my euros for zlotys.
