KRAKOW, POLAND - NO JOKING AROUND

August 5th 2009
DAY 113 We spent a good part of last evening trying to decide where we were going this morning. We checked accommodations and train schedules, referring to the web and the Lonely Plant book.

A question about living dinosaurs
Well, I believe dragons and dinosaurs are the same things, just with two different words for the same kind of living animal. Now, I wonder, how did they come to the conclusion that the bones are of Jurassic age? Are the bones even fossilized? Have the bones ever been taken down from their chains and been thoroughly examined? What scientists "proved" the bones to be "Jurassic" bones? Where are these bones located? Why were they believed to be dragon bones? Is there a story behind the bones? Are there anymore sources for your information? And most of all, what kind or genus or species of dinosaur have the "bones" been assigned to? Waiting for answers!

Visit krakow, Poland
We were relating the information that our guide had given us. We were enjoying the mythical dragon story that generations of Polish parents handed down to their children. We did not interrogate our guide on the veracity of claims given to the bones. We accepted that what they said was true. We truly didn't care one way or another. It's a great story. I suggest a personal visit to see for yourself. Maybe you too will be enthralled with the magical and mystical world of dragons, to the extent that the bone composition and origin will be irrelevant. Sorry I don't have the information you are seeking. I am sure the answer can be found on the web.
