A quick visit to Leipzig

Another night of very disturbed sleep is leaving me with very sore eyes. I have no idea why I feel this way as I should be very relaxed with all this time on my hands but I guess that’s often the way.

We checked out of our hotel in Duderstadt this morning and I attended my appointment at the clinic. Today I had hyperthermia and an injection of Newcastle disease virus.

I was intrigued as always to see the different faces now at the clinic. On my way out I noticed more Portuguese people and one man in a wheel chair with a film crew equipped with a large camera and tripod. I guess they must be making a tv programme on it.

We drove a few hours east to a city called Leipzig. This is half way to our next destination but to break up our journey. We have a few days until my next round of appointments at the clinic. Rather than stay in Duderstadt we have taken the opportunity to take in more of Europe. So far today we have seen where Bach is buried, where Goethe drank and wrote Faust. There is a statue of Goethe and Mephisto. It’s meant to be lucky to stroke Goethes foot. It’s quite a nice place but it’s a good thing we are only here for a day.

I’m going to take this opportunity to try and rest… I’m looking forward to our next stop!
