Floods, water everywhere

This picture was taken on the road between Krakow and Lublin
yesterday. The floods are real, and we were detoured twice by road
closings. This gave us a plentiful look at the countryside and a new
appreciation for the Eisenhower highway system. The trip lasted two
hours longer than it should. Shortly after our arrival to Majdanek, a
strong T-storm broke out, a fitting setting for our visit of the camp
that, for several of our travelers, has made the most powerful
impression. Faced with the immensity of death and destruction, only
silence remains. . .
