1999 Through the window on a journey - rear window.jpg

Krakow is an ancient city in Poland which in recent years got famous as the location of Auschwitz Concentration Camp. I visited Krakow in 1994, but because I was there to research museums, I was busy the whole time I was there. So I remember, during my three day stay there, spending my free time in the morning and the evening stuck, making sketches by the window in my hotel room. European cities have their regional uniqueness and atmospheres. I felt a kind of loneliness from Krakow. Maybe it was because of the city’s history. The hotel I stayed at was right in the center of the city, however there weren’t many people walking around the hotel in the evenings.
