I have been enjoying one of the television channels that I found. It is one that features German music by contemporary singers. When one listens to most radio stations here or hears music in various stores, it is generally in English, so this is a welcome discovery to become more acquainted with German musical artists.

Got to Leipzig around 1:00 p.m. and dropped my suitcase at the hotel. From there I went to the Baumwollspinnerei, which is now a complex of galleries, studio spaces, and design/marketing companies.
