Arrival in Dresden about 8.00pm very warm welcome at the hotel. Met in youth club ready for for broadcast at 2pm, which went very well. We had and interpreter by the name of ‘Emily’ which was a good help as we did not know any German.
Thursday 17th April
We went to Dresden today and it was a mixture of old and new buildings, one church had been rebuilt after the 2nd World War and was beautiful inside. We also saw other buildings which included a palace and then we returned to see the hosts presenting a film being made with green screen technology. Then we had lunch before a panel of people who were having an AGM discussion (pity it was in German)
Friday 18th April
Another trip to Dresden before returning to the community centre for another discussion. Friday night we went by invite to a preview of films by artists (animations) which were very good. We returned to the hotel early hours of the morning.
