Looks like a good place to go through before heading for Italy - Even a great parking place for someone's yellow toy that is in transition.

In Italy, there probably be more red cars (Ferrari and Maserati - owned by Fiat) and maybe few yellow Lamborghini's owned by Audi.

I assume that may be something like the military modules you will be working out of.

Keep the travelogue/adventure photos coming.

If it is in Krakow, the car could be headed for Russia via the Russian mafia.

There is a strong connection through Poland by the Russian mafia

Poland is a big supplier of "hot" Mercedes and other cars into Russia. My Russian exchange student (age 17) explained the problem they had when her father (doctor/GYN from Georgia) got a "new" Mercedes. Her mother then got the father's 1 year old Mercedes, she got her mother's 2 year old Mercedes and her brother (age 11) got her 3 year old Mercedes, but there was no place to park them.

In some countries car titles mean little as long as you have insurance on the car.

Poland is an ideal place in terms of progress and the people are even better, but there is a lot of cross-traffic.

Enjoy the Polish beer and potato vodka (Chopin is pricey!) before being able to get the white sauces from Northern Italy.

I was born about 65km outside of kraków, still have family there and in gliwice. each time I go visit I seem to appreciate more and more. I'd recommend the wieliczka salt mine, its a lil past the city, amazing work on the inside.

I finally got out on the town in Krakow. I found the Irish Pub! In one pic is a pic of the joinery of a platform constructed in cellar bar. They added it to gain usable floor space. Very nice work. I might go back and get a couple more pics if your interested. Here you go, dorf dude...

Well, then enjoy yourself on "holiday" until Christmas. Try not to get into trouble with the Mafia. And if they offer you a yellow Lamborghini for a thousand bucks, I think you'd better decline!

By the way, that cork wall looks excellent!

Isn't that eagle a specific symbol of something in Germany? I seem to remember something very similar to that from my stamp collecting days when I was a kid. And YES, I really was a kid back then.

There is a tradition that lovers lock a padlock on the bridge to show their affection for each other. Here's a pic, dorf dudeGerman House Rebuild-img_0020.jpg
