Day 2 - Warsaw

Today was sunny and warm, and we spent most of the day doing the Warsaw Behind the Scenes tour recommended by Julie-Ann, which we thoroughly enjoyed.  We were the only guests on the communist era red bus, which was very nice for us, and we learned some of the history of Poland and Warsaw from our guide Marcin, as well as exploring some of the highways and byways of Warsaw.  Our tour included very nice Polish pastries for morning tea, as well as some delicious Polish soup for lunch.  The pastry shop we visited is just up the road from our hotel and our afternoon walk included another visit to try Roski, which wasn't available when we visited earlier.  Much of central Warsaw was destroyed by the Nazis and is now an interesting mix of architectural styles.
