What are we doing here? Is this real?

We have now been in Krakow for a day and a half. Arrived at tiny local airport and were met by Polish speaking driver and taken to our very comfortable and well-located 17th Century hotel.Wandered down to the Jewish quarter of Kazimiericz and found jewish centre in an old Synagogue. People there were fascinated by Celina's story and seemed very happy to meet someone who survived as a child of the Krakow Ghetto. We met a lady at Jewish Centre and an Anthropogist from Canada who was intrigued and excited by Celina's story. We purchased a new book on Schindler in which the photo of the family survivors with Tom Kenneally is shown.
Today we will take our own tour to the Jewish quarter Schindler's factory and the Wawel and tomorrow we are to take a private tour to Auschwitz Birkenau. Up to now we have largely enjoyed the noise and music and old buildings of this Medieval city.
Our Hotel sits on the edge of the Market Square and we had a birdseye view of the square from the new Hard Rock Cafe sipping cocktails and watching buskers horse-drawn carriages and listening to music for the last 2 nights.
