Here are a few more pictures from Dresden, before "we" leave. First, we had to eat. It was noon when our official city guiding was done, and it was a rather bitter day weather-wise, so we wanted someplace warm, too. We were about 10 people who disappeared through a doorway, and down a long, spiraling staircase, not really knowing what to expect. What greeted us when we got to the bottom was a medieval-style(d) restaurant, the Sophienkeller. I highly recommend it!
The atmosphere delighted us and so did the food. I had potato soup. The men had Real Men's Food. (One of them actually skipped dinner that evening. Understandably, since he'd eaten his entire lunch!)
Then it was back out in what was somewhat improved weather, camera ready.
This organ grinder holds up a sign in front of his face if you try to take a picture without paying him 1 Euro. I did pay but I think this is the better picture.
Our hotel was on the river and apparently got a lot of bugs. I found this warning hung on my window's handle:
And the wonderful English translation on the reverse:
In spite of that warning, I did find three spiders (living and dead) in my hotel room. I also discovered that there is a screen on the window, too. Feisty spiders!
