Helllloooooo, Iron Curtain!

A few photos from my weekend in Dresden. For a city that the Allies did there best (well, best at the time) to wipe off the map, Dresden has made a nice little comeback. The old town (est. 1946) is filled with rebuilt baroque architecture, while the new town (est. 1743) has to make do with outdated original baroque architecture.

It was too cold to protest while I was in Dresden.

Congrats on New Zealand!
