Now in Krakow, Poland, where everything is much cheaper and they have minty hot chocolate with green cherries. In other exciting news, today we visited our last church for the rest of the trip. Churches are great but boy we have been to a lot of them.

We have arrived in Haunswies, a small village near Augsburg, a small town near Munich. We’re staying with a wonderful family that Rain knows, also there is good sausage. I have decided that Germany is awesome.
