Bautzen, New Years

Neue Jahr aus Dresden (von meiner Pension Fenster) war "Zehn, neun, acht..." Und dann, Feuerwerk und Kirchenglocken für eine halbe stunde. Es war magisch.

The next day I ran into a cool building while doing a u-turn. It reminded me of the wintergarden that I walked past daily in the Auckland Domain.

Beautiful walk...

To a graveyard!

Of course, if you know my family, we are not afraid of graveyards. Since I come from a long line of dead people, I find them interesting. And this was gorgeous, all the little headstones draped in fresh snow.

Me and a headstone.

Back to the remains of the day... the mustard museum.

And the streets of Bautzen.

Wow - you are so lucky to see that graveyard - the stones seem very close together - do you know why? You are very correct in saying this family loves graveyards - anywhere, everywhere in the world. How many other families do we know that actually search out graveyards on their vacations - no relatives there, just random graveyards - love it. You probably are not aware that in at least one Hong Kong cemetery you only get 7 years in a graveyard and then the next one moves in...crowded conditions.
