She and her family went to the hospital. It was then 7 a.m. local time when we arrived in Amsterdam. Our next and final flight of the day was from AMS to Warsaw.

On our third day in Poland we did quite a bit more traveling. After a sleepless night, we began with yet another early morning and took our bus to the Old Town of Warsaw for mass in Saint Anne's Church.
