The signature landmark of Dresden is the Frauenkirche, the Church of Our Lady. It is one of the most talked about German buildings in the recent past.
In World War II, air-raids wiped out Dresden, destroying many historic buildings and churches. Among them was the Frauenkirche, which collapsed into a 42 feet high pile of rubble; the ruins were left untouched for 40 years, a reminder of the destructive powers of war.
Dresden was on our way to Prague so we thought we would look at the old city, and the church they had to rebuild after the serious bombing during the war. We had a walk around, saw some great historic buildings and had a beer. It was a lovely city but me and Roy were both hot now, so we pushed on to Prague to find a hotel.
We thought about camping but wanted easy down time.
... yet another place you knew as a boy was great fun, especially with my overheating great friend.
The lady doing the tour liked my t-shirt, but did encourage Roy to to get his pasty nips out, and licked her lips when he did. Roy missed that.
The ingenuity of the guys that were held there was amazing, they even built a glider, which was proved to work by a channel 4 film recently.
... bikes upstream towards Dresden. I thought you might be interested in some data obtained from Sue's Fitbit. It tells us that so far on this trip we have walked 660km and biked 730km. On most days we leave our accommodation about 9.00am and don't get in till around 4.00pm, with most of the time between walking. We have agreed to call one of our Berlin days an official rest day. We will see how that pans out. Love ...
... I'm pretty sure we would call it quiche)). She also gave me a glass of wine. She gave me some yesterday too, and it seems she always gives it to me when I am tired (yesterday after we were shopping for hours, today after biking and sight seeing all day... oiyoiyoi).
A very entertaining day. Tomorrow I leave to go to camp! I'm not sure if there is wifi, or if using electronics is permitted, so... we will see if I am blogging this week or not.
