It's been tremendously rebuilt. ...
Significant drop in the temperature today So out come the warm clothes. Warming up with large round mugs of hot chocolate sitting on the Verandah at the Panorama, our Pension in Rathen. Planning to have smoked trout at the smoke house on the river before catching our steamer boat that will take us to Dresden. Wow smoked trout was fabulous!
Loved the steamer which took us slowly down ...
