Dresden!

I have now made my way south and am in Dresden. Well Radebeul to be more correct but still its just outside of Dresden and I have been into the city a couple times already.

It is such an amazing city. The whole place was basically flatten in 1945 just before the end of the war. They have rebuilt so much of the old town and buildings and it looks simply amazing. The old church - Frauenkirche - which has just finished being reconstructed is such an amazing structure and means so much to the people. The - Zwinger - is also amazing I think I like it the best. I got some photo's today but the clouds were out so my pictures don't do the place justice. The whole Altstadt area is just great so many old building all packed together make it just a great sight.

I am staying with family down here too and its great once again. They speak english and what works out to be my 3rd cousins are my age and younger. The one that picked me up from the trainstation speaks english perfectly and she is headed for Leipzig on Friday aswell so I am tagging along with her and now also have a place to sleep in Leipzig. Should be a great weekend!

The net connection here is good so I should get some pictures up tomorrow!

Yeah I know that. Although we kind of lost that when we went ii and I didn’t think the whole place was cheering me on :P Hence maybe I thought a new team name was more likely.
