So knowing that I’d be leaving Dresden this afternoon, I decided to take a leisurely walk through the old part of the city. I have to say that today turned out to be one of the better days here. I’m not really sure why, and I’m not actually saying that it was fun, but for some reason since I was taking it relatively easy things just seemed a little bit more relaxed. I stopped for a brockwurst and beer on my way back to the hostel, and decided to have another brockwurst and beer, and when I finished that, I went back for another beer… So maybe that’s why Germans like their beer so much, it goes well with brockwurst, and makes everyday life just a little bit better. I can honestly say that after three beers, Dresden seems okay. :)
I’ve still got two hours before my bus leaves and I’m trying hard not to show up to the bus stop too early– like I always seem to do. For that reason I’m doing this right now, trying to think of things to write about to keep me at the hostel until about an hour before the bus leaves. I am starting to run out of things to write about though…
For anyone wondering why I didn’t post any images in the last post (or this post) it’s because the internet connection doesn’t seem to allow it. I tried this morning with the earlier post and then tried again just few minutes ago, and the browser just spins saying it’s waiting… so hopefully I’ll be able to add the pictures when I get to Amsterdam. Speaking of Amsterdam, I’m getting excited that in less than a day I’ll be there. I’ve got this image of bridges, narrow streets, and a totally different perspective than what I’m used to. I can’t wait until I get to see it for myself.
