Some first moments from Leipzig

Being in Leipzig is moving: so many layers of history, from Goethe memories (he studied here) to esst germam history - the church is one of the main places of the peaceful revolution that lead to reunion. People gathered and walked here every monday, risking their freedom to get to larger freedom.

Walking through the sunny streets made it hard to believe that just some hours earlier, there was snow and rain. Just as it is hard to believe that not so long ago, there was a wall between East and West Germany.
