A lovely early C20th building in Jena Paradies
Once outside of Leipzig the scenery becomes quite lovely, with farmed valleys full of wheat between wooded hillsides often topped with a monastery or castle. This area is Saxony, close to the border with Czechoslovakia, and the area affected by the recent flooding. Fields are drying out, there are stagnant pools all over and some people's vegetable garden + little cabins showing the nasty muddy bathtub ring of recent flooding.
It's nice to see pretty hilly Germany again after over 2 weeks of visiting urban northern Germany.
