Well, I got some drawing and cutting done, so it was a good day of thinking and working. This building was a train repair station and my space is on a newly constructed second floor. See where the trains came through?

Today I will have a reception announcing my arrival and to introduce me to Dresden, and I hope to meet some more artists.Last week I had a wonderful time meeting two Dresden Artists, Tobias and Katerina. Tobias has been on the exchange and came to Ohio before. I I believe he will be back very soon as well. I also want to send out a huge thank you to Iduna whom runs the Gallery here at the Raskolnikoff, as well as helps with bringing in artists from different countries, assisting visiting artists like myself and tons more, thanks again Iduna!!

I got a bike today!! Horray for Iduna!! and Danka! I love this bike I had to get used to the hand break as well as peddle break, and the high high high handlebars. I road around the block for a while, then headed out and followed other bikers to get the low down. And here it is, you ride your bike anywhere you want. You can ride on the sidewalk, on the road, going the wrong way on a one way street, and into a restaurant. Bikes rule Dresden, but you do have to watch out for cars. Here also is some Dresden wildlife, a little doggy. There are also everywhere, and so well trained they just walk along with their owners, this is really amazing. This cute dog came out of a store while I stopped to take this picture of the cobblestone road (ouch) he trotted out, gave me a sniff and a look and casually strolled back in. They are also so used to people that they almost never bark, or look at you when you pass.
