More Warsaw

We spent most of our afternoons walking around Warsaw. This time of year the sun is setting around 4 pm and it was REALLY cold out.

There's a Hard Rock Cafe in Warsaw. The sign out front says "Choppers Parking Only." We thought the two scooters parked there were pretty funny. (Polish for Choppers?)

Maybe it is because I like family history so much, or maybe I am just weird... but I think cemeteries are massively interesting. This is the Catholic part of a cemetery in Warsaw-- dating back to at least the 1500s.

This is part of the Jewish cemetery in Warsaw. It just goes on and on for as far as you can see. (And for at least 2 tram stops, which is how far we had to go to get to the entrance from the Catholic side.)

Maybe if you click on the photo you can read the bottom- but it says, "In memory of one million children murdered by Nazi German barbarians 1939-1945."

Charlotte was desperate to make a friend in Poland. Newel teased her that she came to the wrong country for making friends... but she ADORED Karolina. So see! She did make a friend in Poland. ;)

He's just so cute, I had to include this photo.

We took Super Scrabble with us and one afternoon Rob and Newel had a quiet game while Karolina and I took the kids shopping and to the playground. It was nice to relax and visit with family and let the kids play. It was a non-traditional Thanksgiving for sure, but thank you for spending it with us!

Did I mention that it was REALLY cold?? ;)
