After a quick snack of handrolls, Voja, Shane and l went to Polin, the Jewish museum. It was an interesting place to walk around, as I learned about Jews in Poland for the last hundreds of years. It was especially relevant because some of my family is from Poland.
After dinner, we went with Billy, her Irish friend, to a bar. The whole area was packed and crazy. There was a challenge that lots of people were trying. It was simply, if you could hold onto a bar for 2min, you win 200zt. While it seems simple, no one could do it! We tried some polish beer and enjoyed the bar scene!
That night, we experienced the vodka for which the country is very known for. A whole crowd of Voja's friends joined us in her flat. Before getting there, we stopped at a store to pick up an arrangement of snack foods and drinks. We leaned how to take a shot the correct way and tasted both their plain vodka and some flavors, including raspberry and quince. I have to say, it is so much better than what we drink in America and so much cheaper. Wow it was good! I than taught them some of our favorite drinking games, as those aren't very common in Poland. All of her friends were so nice and we both really enjoyed the experience. I learned so much from my conversations with them, it was a very inspiring day.
We collected some snacks (I tried kefir, which was pretty good, especially cause it was flavored) and said our good byes before heading to the train station for our next stop, Krakow.
