Today's weather matched the mood

Today was overcast & a bit drizzly but suited what we faced a day tour of Auschwitz Birkenau & the Salt Mine.

Auschwitz Birkenau.......
Words cannot explain how it felt to visit so take a moment to look at the pictures (quickly picked cause it's late & we have a very early start) in silence

The visit to the salt mine was a different affair, some 378 steps later we arrived in the mine, we snaked through tunnels, admired cathedrals 100 or so meters below the surface, there was salt statues & a lift I'm sure should have only had about 4 people in not 5 to bring us back to the surface. We ended at 135m deep who would have known you where that far underground?
