oops warsaw…

yesterday at an internet cafe in berlin i booked a hostel for the same night in wroclaw, poland. i went to the train station and showed them the city…they printed me a ticket to warsaw. thinking (after being reassured several times that this was the case) that warsaw and wroclaw were simply different coutnries’ names for the same city, i ended up in the capital city of poland at 11:30pm with no hostel. surprise!!

somehow i managed to ask two english teachers for directions on the street! what luck. they pointed out that the address of my hostel was in wroclaw not warsaw…and with a pitied look set out determined to find me a hostel. and as if that weren’t enough, one of them actually PAID for it for me (of course i will be paying her back) because the hostel didn’t accept cards and i didn’t yet have any zloti (that may not be how it’s spelled, but it’s how it sounds).

anyway, i slept well (minus the HORRIFIC snoring of gal in a neighboring bunk) and now i have a surprise visit to another wonderful place. oops.
