Flag of Germany  , Saxony,
Monday, April 2, 2012

We drove to Dresden today; about 45 minute drive or so from Chemnitz.  We had a nice walk around seeing the sights; we climbed the tower of one of the old churches and toured through the old (now below ground) parts of the original city fortress built in the 1500s.  It was very interesting.  Nice lunch, tired feet, early back to apartment to rest up a bit.

I stand corrected on my comments on Chemnitz; Wikipedia says it is experiencing growth and is one of the fasted growing cities in Germany (although the state of Saxon is overall losing population).  All in all, it's an interesting region (is anyone counting how many times I use the phrase "interesting"?  I am not)...
