We made it to Krakow. The train ride was comfortable, but it was seven hours long. We also had to wait about forty minutes at the train station in Warsaw to switch trains. Krakow is a beautiful city, and I can’t wait to go see some of the historical places in this town. I look forward to the tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps. Most of us know about concentration camps and what happened at them, but this tour will show us in person some of the places it happened. The reason I want to see the camps is because I have been to the Holocaust museum in Washington D.C. Since I have been to the museum, I would like to see some of the actual places it happened. Some other things I would like to see are the Jewish quarters and there is an old castle that is suppose to be interesting to see.

Now that we are in Krakow, our first day went pretty well. Once we got checked into the dorms, we went and ate at a nice restaurant. Then, we looked at some souvenir shops and I bought a shirt. After looking around, McGahan, Amber, and I went to a ice cream shop on top of a building in the old town center. Once we were done at the ice cream shop, we spent the rest of the evening relaxing.
