The Prez is in Town

Well, lucky for me, not really. I live far enough away from both Dresden (100km) and Weimar(160km) to not be affected by the close to ridiculous security measures they have put in place (like people not being allowed to even open up a window in any street his car passes by). On the other hand – it would have been nice to be there. He seems an amicable person and his choice of locations to visit shows an excellent taste in historical interest, both the artsy and political. I’m in Dresden from time to time and I’ve visited Weimar a number of occasions, including the concentration camp of Buchenwald, so I kinda know what he’s about to see.
