#5 Dresden, Germany
by Love Like Birds
Woke up sticky and sweaty
the room was hot like a tent in summer
Still feeling ecstatic , remembering last night
Finally a place where you can just dance to Feist, Lykke Li, Beck, Phoenix and all those other lovelies.
Benne and I went for breakfast in the sun, just around the corner
With our bellies filled with sugar, we left for Dresden.
I love driving through Germany, being surrounded by trees.
I keep my window open
A friend of mine lives here, so I’m very excited to see what his city looks like in broad day light
The area we play in has a Berlin/Kreuzberg feel to it.
Lots of street art, tiny beach bars, people all around, just sitting on the curb, having a beer
We are welcomed by this horse-doggy who takes me for a walk
It’s so hot outside, and I’m happy to get out of the car
Soundcheck goes well and quickly, and we have time to chill out, and enjoy the sun
The cook made a delicious fish en papillote – dish and I’m ready to play
So good to see Max again, and meet his sweet girlfriend, Nadine.
He drew a map of his apartment, which he lends us for the night
Interesting talks about pop-up coffeeshops and all these bands I have to check out
People here seem very open and spontaneous, without being too much.
I’m so sad we have a long drive tomorrow and I didn’t really get the time to explore
Touring is not a holiday, I know.
Have to come back soon.
The full moon leads us home, and I take the upper bunk bed.
Max, you have a beautiful apartment. Thanks again.
Fact of the day:
40% of the orders at McDonalds are Happy Meals
