Where I stayed
Astral Inn, Leipzig
We checked out the shopping centre that is near the main train station in Leipzig.
After that we decided to go out to the Trade Centre and check out the competition. All I
can say, is wow, that place is huge. We walked and walked and walked. We
visited all the skills that had an Aussie and then went to see what Jay was up
The area the sheet metal guys have is quite large with their work areas and welding bays
lined up along 2 sides, so everyone can see them working
we arrived, with his back to us, but when he stopped welding, he spotted us and
waved. It is hard to tell how he is going, as everyone started on a different
part of the project, but he looked quite calm and relaxed (typical Jay).
By 3.30pm we had had enough of the crowds (it was school visit day and there were kids
everywhere) so headed back into town on the tram.
We had a rest in the centre of Leipzig, where they had set up a mini trade show with a
few stalls, food and entertainment. When we got there, there was a guy singing
Australian songs (Slim Dusty type songs) in English, but then when he finished
he spoke German. I was kind of weird. He was not really good.
After a long day we left at 7pm to find somewhere to eat and then headed back on the tram.
The jet lag was kicking in and we were both walking zombies.
