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.
