Ukraine / Germany Trip, Day #10
We took a long night train from Lviv through Poland and arrived in Dresden, Germany in the early afternoon. Border security between Ukraine and Poland was pretty intense. The train was stopped for at least an hour while official after official (first the Ukrainians, then the Polish) checked passports, checked rooms for drugs, checked passports again, asked questions, etc. I was glad when the train started moving so I could get some sleep! Unfortunately the train was a really old clunker and I didn’t sleep too well. Ah well. When we arrived in Dresden we checked in to our accommodations, did some grocery shopping, and then hit up the Christmas markets downtown. Man were they ever busy! I’d forgotten how good (albeit expensive!) the market food is. The markets shut down around 9:00pm so we headed back to our apartment.
