Rick Steves in his guidebook mentions that a number of tours leave from the Jarden Bookshop in Krakow. I am interested in the three-hour tour of Kazimierz and the World War II ghetto. I want to see these areas mostly because I was overwhelmed by Thomas Keneally's novel, Schindler's List, after reading it recently. Also, I take an interest in any World War II history because my dad served in the US Navy in the Pacific during the war. Rick mentions that going on a tour with others lowers the cost, and I would like to see these sites with like-minded people. Does anyone reading this want to take that tour with me in the early afternoon of Sunday, 24 May? If so, in-mail me via this site, and we'll arrange to meet and take the tour. (That same morning I plan to see Oskar Schindler's factory in Krakow.)
That evening, I would enjoy dining with others, whether Polish, American or from another country, in the Kazimierz or central Krakow. I don't speak Polish and hope a phrasebook I have will help me with the basics as I see the city. (I speak some Spanish.) I have traveled a fair amount in Europe and love the continent. Cheers, C.
