Dresden is a very large city and looks prosperous and elegant. Yesterday we were escorted round the palace treasury. Stuffed with gold, silver and diamonds, all way over the top. Not my style at all. However on the top floor, with no viewers, was a lovely exhibition of some of their prints and drawings. Rosie you would have loved it. Then more organs, then a posh dinner because that was our last night. Today we split up. Half the group are going home and the other half are taking the train to Eisenach to start on a week's festival of concerts devoted to Bach, and at least two concerts a day.
I think it was a mistake on my part. I want to think about organ music and play some of the CDs I have bought but by the time I have sat through16 concerts of orchestral music, I will have forgotten about Bach and organ music.

And below more Altenburg. You know how in any group of tourists, there is always one who holds the group up by lagging behind to take another interesting photograph. Well in this group, that is me. Someone said to me that I was a keen photographer. And I replied, No, obsessive. Oh well
