I discussed the trip from Portland to Krakow in the previous blog entry, but here’s a few pictures of the trip itself. The trip started out with some familiar sights.

Riding the Yellow Line to transfer to the Red Line Airport MAX

That First Flight
Waiting in Chicago (This is the point where my luggage got lost)
The 747-8 that I flew on out of Chicago. Except this picture is in Frankfurt.
CREWBUS in action!
Krakow from the air
Karkow Airport… well, ok, not much of the airport, but I was at the airport at this point.
The View Out of the window of My Flat
The Flat Itself
The Old Local Street that leads from the flat to the primary arterial nearby.
Here’s the location on Google Maps.
Here’s the bike route into the city core of Krakow.

I’ve primarily used transit because it is extremely efficient here. Frequencies of trams into the city core come about every 1-4 minutes. The transit authority in Krakow is called the Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Komunikacyjne s.a. w Krakowie (abbreviated as MPK) which basically stands for public transport in Krakow.
Here are a few more pictures from directly near my flat.
Bike Lanes, nope, full on Cycle Tracks EVERYWHERE
Normal at a crossing, tons of cyclists, pedestrians… autos here and there and nearby trams and buses passing by.

I’ll have a full review of many of my observations now that I’m actually on the 3rd week of being in the city. So keep reading, I’ll likely publish that tomorrow.
