DAY 54 - AUG 3 - OSTRAVA to OSWIECIM
I actually had to put my rain jacket on today during the first 20 miles as I approached the Polish border. The scenery continues to be pleasant. Drivers must be hitting the trees at night on the narrow roads so the Poles have strapped reflectors on them.
I was mostly on protected paths, but there were some trafficky sections. After I arrived at my lodging for the night and looked at a tourist map, I was very surprised to come to the understanding that "Oswiecim" is better known to the world in German as "Auschwitz". More about this tomorrow.
