Jan 20 – Sunday- Driving through Narnia

Sunday Jan 20
12639 steps today.

We left Prague Sunday morning and headed back to Germany to Dresden.  In many places the snow/ice on the trees reminded me of what I imagine Narnia would look like before the return of Aslan.  If you do not know what Narnia is then you must read the books some day (by C.S. Lewis)

In Dresden we attended the church called Frauenkirche (Church of our Lady).  This protestant church was destroyed along with the rest of the city on an air raid on Feb 13 and 14, 1945 (the night of a thousand bombers).  The church was rebuilt after the iron curtain came down.  We were not permitted to take photos during the service, but I took this picture on our way out after the service.  It is an amazing church building – but more importantly it was a wonderful service.

For lunch I had Soup and Buttercake with coffee.  I thought I would take pictures of our food today to show you how nicely food is served here in Germany.

The Buttercake came with a whipped topping made from red currants – just like my mom used to make!

We then drove on to Leipzig for a short visit and to spend the night.   Our dinner was also a great dinner including cloth tablecloths and napkins and candles.

Salad included slices of ham

I had someone complain that I am not in many of the pictures so I had someone take a picture of our table:

After dinner we had one of our class meetings where the discussions ranged from global companies to our “right” to vote.
