WEDNESDAY IN KRAKOW

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Onsdag 27 juni 17:33

This morning Linnea was set to go to the Wieliczka salt mine which lies within the Krakow metropolitan area. Opened in the 13th century, the mine produced table salt continuously until 2007, as one of the world's oldest salt mines in operation.

Commercial mining was discontinued in 1996, because of salt prices going down and also mine flooding. The mine is currently one of Poland's official national historic monuments whose attractions include dozens of statues and four chapels carved out of the rock salt by the miners, as well as supplemental carvings made by contemporary artists.


UNESCO has entered the Wieliczka Salt Mine in its World Heritage Register in 1978.

 

 

 

 

   


This was something Mom was looking forward to seeing, but getting there and being told the tour is 3 hours long and that she'll be walking in narrow space single file at a depth of 327 meters. (1020ft).............nope not happening. So why did we drive here? I want to know. Response is. Before she saw the crowd of people and before she knew how narrow the cave is in spaces, way too many in one group so the thought of getting crammed in the middle with nowhere to go at 327 meters depth and...........nope not happening..........in the end you were brought up in some rickety mineshaft.........nope not happening.............................so we went back to Krakow and set up camp.

 

 

   

after we set up camp in Krakow Mom went to a supermarket only a couple of blocks away. She took so long I thought she was lost, but she had stopped to get a manicure on the way. And tomorrow a hair appointment........maybe know she'll stop obsessing about the MEBLOWY signs, which she finally got on film. She claims everybody in America would think the same as Mom..............hairsalon, not a furniture store? hmmm I wonder

 

 

 

We have seen so many funny signs on the road, warnings for who knows what............What does this mean? wave to everyone who drives a scooter?

 


Not sure when we'll get into the city, Mom is really into a book she started and she's feeding the pidgeons...........you see the pattern here?........ what's next?

It's raining again and we are nice and cozy here in Lucy for now.

It's getting longer and longer between the updates now, and I know that it means getting closer to the flight over the ocean so I'm ok with it. I think Mom got a little bit of cabin fever parked on the top of a ski slope in a small village called S...

I haven't updated my blog in over a week and I haven't bugged Mom about it either. The reason is that we spent a week in Moms puppy town visiting with friends and relatives. Not much happening for me but I'm very grateful to be in the country where M...

Last night we spent by this river and we both slept very well as the wind rocked us to sleep. In the morning it was sunny and it looked like it'll turn out to another gorgeous day.   there is not much traffic here and it could feel pretty lonely...

Just woke up and we're parked by a lake in the middle of nowhere, at least that's what I think but Mom says she knows exactly where we are and where we're going.................so we'll see. We've been visiting with Moms cousins in their gorgeous l...

An entire week has been gone by since my update and that's because Mom says we don't have much to tell right now. We are at Mom's puppy town and visiting so many homes eating and eating and eating and in between, we do "fika" I have most wrapped ...
