Warsaw

Warsaw -Poland's Capital City

We took the train to Warsaw from Lodz. We arrive at the hotel.  Mark and Jared mind the luggage and Marlis, while Elaine and Lesley check into the Marriott.

Lesley takes a break with Marlis, while Elaine, Jared and Mark go on a 3 hour (scheduled) ride/walk tour of Warsaw.   Little did we know how MUCH walking, and that the temperature had dipped to the minus teens (i.e. -19 C. ).  While it was a nice tour, it was really cold.

Jared made the call to end the tour early and head to the restaurant for a few drops of warmth.  Lesley go lost on the way, but finally made it with Marlis.  We had a great time at a restaurant that overlooks the famous Old Town Square in Warsaw.
