We are now approaching the Saxon "Switzerland" on the border with the Czech Republic. This is mining country and reminds me if the Colorado mining area. Silver and a bunch of rare earth metals were hauled out of this region until the mines died. The towns south and east of Zwichau are deep in the hills and now create the most incredible wood carved items and handmade lace. Gorgeous country as usual :) Zwichau is also known for the cars produced by the Horch factory - Audi ...
So after a very late night last night it was up early today to head out for a 9 1/2 hour excursion. We were headed to the spa town of Karlovy Vary- about 20 kilometers from the German border. The town was originally settled by Germans but now is heavily populated by Russians. There are 16 mineral water springs in the town, in addition to the many hotels and "sanitariums" where one can bathe in the mineral spring water. Each tap has ...
... the last time I saw a TV. We are living the good life in one sense though, being able to go out into the garden and pick leeks, onions, garlic, tomatoes, basil, peppers etc is so much easier than tesco's and self service machines.

Dinner was whatever was in the cupboard and we enjoyed games and drinks as the washing was ...
... a place to sleep, and the sun was up again to my nice surprise.
In the meantime, I rode the next 120 km to Dresden. I have for the first time since leaving Switzerland given myself a day off biking. I stay in a sort of youth hostel, 11 euro per night, a shower and breakfast, perfect for me.
I have already and will tonight a bit more experience Dresden. Very interesting, will write a blog about this city later.
Today is my last day in Germany, will be in Poland ...
