Leaving Warsaw behind
Today we left for Krakow after 5 days in Warsaw. It was hard to say farewell to our friends from Israel and Poland...but we made some great connections that I hope we can continue with collaborative efforts between schools in the coming months. We were treated kindly by the staff and wont soon forget the efforts that they went to to make us feel welcome. The Polish people are extremely warm and kind when you get to know them. On to Krakow where we settle into a nice hotel in the heart of the Jewish quarter. Tomorrow we will have a huge day at a local school, visit to Auschwitz and to Birkenau as well as an art exhibit...sleep is a must!
The Picture is of all of us and a few of the staff.
