Saxon beers and sausage roll

I have a funny feeling that the autumn is going to be busy, so it is nice to be on holiday for a little while. And you might guess from the title that we're back in Dresden, having enjoyed the city so much in May that we were moved to come back.

This time, we have some proper exploration in mind, given that last time, we were a bit disorganised, drifting around in a bit of a haze, and quite dismally failing to visit most of the key attractions. The guidebook has been read (mostly by Ros, I admit), plans made. And we have enough time to do it well. We have been welcomed with some decent weather too, with the forecast for sunshine until Wednesday, when we leave for the second leg of the trip.

So, stand by for tales of good beer, quite a lot of pork, and a bit of seventeenth century history, most of it pretty grim. For we are in one of the key locations for the Thirty Years War...
