Krakow and Auschwitz Blog by Wiley

We got to Krakow on an overnight train from Prague.  We walked to our hotel and went down to the town square and had breakfast.

After breakfast, we walked to the Wawel Castle.  We looked around in the castle, saw the Cathedral, climbed to the top of the bell tower, and then went to the dragons's den.  This is a cave under the castle.  When you get out of the cave there is a dragon that breathes fire.

The train tracks in the Auschwitz death camp.  We saw a train car were everyone was packed in without seats.  They had little or no food and water.  They had to spend days in there.  Being here made me feel sad to see a place where a million and half people were killed. 

We saw a concert called the Sacrum Profanum Festival. It was cool because they had 20 guitar players playing together.  

This is the town square where we played and we scared pigeons and had lots of fun!
