One last night in Dresden. We walked across the Elbe river to the finance ministry and sat on the steps, looking over the city by night. It was a mild late summer evening in great company.
At 430am the alarm rang and it was time to get up and drive back to Düsseldorf. 6 hours later, all checked in, we boarded air Berlin to fly back to San Francisco.
Traditionally, the flight is a transition time – on the one hand saddened by the end of a trip and on the other the return home to Stella and oscar. 12 hours, 2 cocktails and movies are about the right ingredients for this aspect of the trip.
A stunning view of the city by the bay is a nice plus.
