"As for me, I'll take one baby marinated in a dish please"

the buildings

What do you think of when you see all these buildings in Dresden, Germany?

Some would say beauty.  Others would say how incredible the architecture was.  And still others would reflect on the war torn city's history and the rebuilding process that has taken place over the last 70 years.  

However, when I see these buildings, I think of how each one was built so intricately that the echo of a single baby's meltdown can transcend throughout the entire central district.  The unbelievable procession of which the sound bounces off each building onto the next and the next and then the next, without skipping a single area.  Was this intended?  Was it a communication outlet during trouble times where the entire community could respond to a single echoing siren?  Who knows.  

What I do know is that this is the place Ellyette chose to have her first major meltdown of the trip.  Do I blame her?  Not really.  In the last two weeks, we have gone from Prague to Venice then over to the Cinque Terre.  Then back to Milan to fly back to Prague.  Then to southern Czech to visit Ceske Krumlov and then back to Prague.  Then Dresden and Berlin Germany.  So for her to have finally had enough with the planes, trains, buses, car, trams, boats and metros is understandable.  But leave it to Ellyette to have a complete and total screaming meltdown in the middle of a Dresden plaza that echoed thoroughly with tourists all around to get her point across.

Can't lie, the kid has style.
