Travel impressions - Bautzen, Saxony, part 1

Roehrscheidtbastei Bautzen  

Three eventful weeks lay behind us and we are now back in Iowa again. I haven't posted anything recently but that does not mean I didn't take any photographs. Joan and I visited my old home town Bautzen in Germany and we had the pleasure to be at the wedding of my son André and his wonderful wife Seraphine. We had a great time meeting with family and friends and as you can imagine spending time in front of my laptop was the last thing I wanted to do. We also went for three days to Prague, the capitol of the Czech Republic and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I will post some images from our trip to Europe during the next couple of weeks and I hope you enjoy it.

Let me start with a picture from the over 1000 years old city of Bautzen, which is located in the Free State of Saxony in the Southeast corner of Germany. The evening sun spilled its warm light onto the Röhrscheidtbastei, an old bastion and one of the numerous towers that give the city its character. This was an easy task for the photographer. We were sitting in a beer garden and had just to wait until the light was right...  ;-)
