No Bad Pierogis in Krakow
My wife and friends are visiting Auschwitz today: there was no way I could have done the walking required. Instead I've organized to get my Spanish phone unlocked and loaded with pay-as-you-go credit, then gave Euromedic my local number to give to our driver who'll pick us up tomorrow afternoon. I've just finished lunch: pierogi ruskie (delicious, but not light) and an Okocim piwo (beer) at a patio on the main square, enjoying the 20 C weather. Tonight we'll probably go to the Alef restaurant in the Kazimierez quarter: near the Jewish ghetto in the Second World War, and (purportedly) Spielberg's favourite restaurant while filming "Schindler's List".
