Alive and in One Piece

Just so everyone is up to date. I am alive and all is well in Leipzig!

The last two weeks have been hectic, getting an apartment, registering for school, registering with the city, opening up a bank account, and the myriad of other things that require setting up which are necessary for day to day life.

Outside of all of the required tasks, we (me, Dad and Joel) have had the opportunity to see some of the country. We have actually spent very little time looking at Leipzig. I suppose there is always time in the future for me to see all the sights that are close by to where now reside.

A real quick re-cap

1 day Berlin whirlwind - mostly waiting at the airport for Joel to arrive
2 days Leipzig - apartment, bank acct, register (both school and city)
4 days Munich - Beer, castles, churches, driving on the autobahn (only 165 kph), seeing friends from the US, a concentration camp, more beer, more castles!
2 days Leipzig - more school stuff and hooking up light fixtures in the bathroom
2 days Dresden - you can probably guess, beer, castles, churches, and ......well beer!

Here are some quick photo highlights...real quick because I haven't had time to even look through them all yet!

Dresden - Katholische Hofkirche

Dresden - Semperoper

Dachau Concentration Camp

Dachau Concentration Camp

Schloss Linderhof

Munich - Wittelsbach Residenz

Leipzig - Thomaskirche (Bach is buried here!)

I'll try to fill in some detail when I have more time available....until then I hope you enjoy!
