We were slugs. We woke up slow and by the time we were dressed, we were hungry so on the advice of the staff at the Radisson Blu, we sought out Meredo near Nikolai Kirche.
We bypassed Nicholas Strasse because for once the area wasn't mobbed since all the stores were closed so we backtracked and I wanted to see a building so we came in by the side to where a man was playing songs from Fiddler on the Roof on an accordian. Turns out he played right beside the restaurant Meredo where we planned to eat, so were serenaded throughout ourmeal.
After lunch we ducked into the Nicholas Kirke to see the beautiful decor and as we left we spotted a display of pictures from the 1989 uprising that started in Leipzig and spread to the rest of Eastern Germany during the fall of the USSR, very sad.
Then we continued on the the Hauptbahnhof to get Bob some limes and while we were there, we found the reservation center open and so made reservations on the ICE trains for several portions of our trip.
Then since it was nearing our early ticket time and I needed to get ready, we returned to the hotel and just relaxed.
Die Feen by Richard Wagner turned out to be a wonderful opera. We bought a brochure telling the story. During the first break, we ran into Mary, our friendly Englishwoman who we'd met the day before, during the second break we played around taking photographs. Afterwards, we went to our room and crashed because we were moving on to Dresden, Germany the next day.
