Day 5 - Warsaw - Czestochowa - Krakow

We headed south to Krakow today and stopped in Czestochowa to visit the Jasna Gora Monastery, home to the Black Madonna icon.  The drive was through the lowlands, but we found it quite scenic.  After we checked into our hotel our Tour Director, Mitja, took those of us who were interested on a walking tour to the main market square and the former Jewish Quarter of Kazimierz, where we had a lovely dinner at an old Jewish restaurant with 2 other couples from our tour.  It was drizzly for the last part of the day but that didn't stop us enjoying walking around Krakow.
