Leipzig

Well. Its been a nice couple days and I still have one and a half left. I've seen so much and pretty much have no idea how to spell any of the things I have seen.

Yesterday we went to the big monument on the edge of town its rather big and kind of ugly but we climbed the narrow stairways and had a very nice view of town. Then in the evening I went with Dani and her boyfriend to a double birthday party. I didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be a good night. As they were all students most of them understood whatever I said and some of them spoke english with me. It was a fun night talking and pulling apart the way I say certain words and the way they spoke english.

Today Christine took me on the her guided city tour. We walked a lot... Saw pretty much ever other street in the city centre and the main attractions. Really nice architecture here and interesting passages in the city center. Went to Christines favourite eating/drinking/meeting place for lunch and then we went a little bit further out to a small schloss.

Dinner was the most random thing ever. I had home cooked African food (as Christine's friend is African). It was great. Here I am in Germany and getting home cooked quality african food. 

Tomorrow is the 1st of May. Day off work for most of Europe. Here in germany there are lots of demonstrations. The left wing and the right wing and such. Neo-Nazis and then the ones against them. We'll try to avoid the demonstrations and we're going to head for the Zoo. I have seen so many buildings and even gardens, parks and forests in my travels so it will be nice to see some of them classic zoo animals. 

Tuesday is a Train day. Wednesday is the ferry Day.

lol. I didn’t pick up that much German but I get the gist of it :) Indeed I did go to the Marzipan place in Lubeck and for the moment there is no reason to rug up. It is rather pleasant weather up here.
