Today’s adventure: Going down in a salt mine

This is in a town called Wieliczka outside Krakow. Just because I know how to spell it, does not mean I know how to pronounce it. After about a half an hour wait, we got to go into the mine.

We will go down some 135 m (400 feet+ or about 40 floors) using 800 steps. And that is only one third of the mine depth. The other two thirds are not open to tourists. There is a walk for about 2.5 miles through intricate labyrinths in the mine. I am glad we have an English speaking guide to make sure we do not get lost.

Fortunately, an elevator is there to take us up eventually.
