A Camel ??

A really stupid question ......... have spent a wonderful week in Krakow - as usual, it's my favourite city ..BUT ... driving back to Krakow from Austwicz yesterday. I'm sure I saw a camel in a field at the side of the road !!! Unfortunately everyone else in the car was asleep ( or just closing their eyes....that's what they told me!)

Can anyone out there confirm that I did see a camel

No, you weren't dreaming. I've seen that camel as well. It's on what looks like a private club/fishing area on the road between Krakow and Oswiecim,(Auschwitz). Maybe somebody local can name the place !

There is a restaurant/wedding house called FLAMINGO (what a name :) ) . It is right before the town of Alwernia that you pass by on 'old road' to Auschwitz. That's about 30 min drive from Krakow.

The owner of the place has a kind of a mini Zoo with various, mainly local though, animals. THERE IS A CAMEL and more of it - owner goes on a camel rides from time to time... I couldn't stop starring as well..

:))) Poland - country of surprises :)))stay vigil! ;)
