Good-bye Krakow

Leaving the keys to our love in Krakow we can never be seperated.

Our final day in Krakow started with a misty and cloudy morning. We had a couple of items on our itenerary still and were bound determined to see what we had planned. Leaving our Iraqi bunkmate who had joined us in our hostel room, he had immigrated to Norway and had a daughter living in Washington State, we headed out for the day.

Starting at St. Mary's cathedral, we saw the opening of the alter and toured the amazing faciliity. The church was packed for the opening ceremony and we were lucky to have front row seats for the action. A nun unvailed the alter and provided us with some nice pictures.

From there we went to the Lover's Bridge with our lock. As seen on the Amazing Race, couples come to this bridge with their lock, lock it in place on the bridge, and toss away the key into the water signifying their love to one another. Here we placed our lock, renewed our love, and tossed our key into the river.

From there we headed to the Milk Bar for lunch where we ate like kings for pennies. Good thing we are doing so much walking. The Polish cuisine has been delicious. We proceeded to do some more shopping in Krakow's Old Town.

After that it was off to the train for our night train to Budapest, we were bth very happy to have a sleeper car for the two of us with beds that were nice and comfortable after the two nights at Atlantis.
