Got to experience Turkish coffee for the first time at Coffe Baum, a coffee shop that has been open in Leipzig since the 16th century. J.S. Bach, Telemann, Schumann, and other great composers regularly came here for coffee. Our barista spoke English and told us a little bit about Coffe Baum and it’s history. Coffe Baum (meaning Coffee Tree) has been owned by the same family for half a millennium and survived the Black Death, both World Wars, and Soviet occupation. Sehr interessant!
Sang next to Bach’s grave 😍

What a magical concert in a wonderful church. Thomaskirche—the church of J.S. Bach—greeted us with an audience of over 700 people tonight.
We have arrived in our hotel room for the next 2 days. Notice the separate bed comforters for sharing a bed. Our host family told us it is traditional to never share sheets when you sleep with someone here.
Glühwine 👍
Had not much time to eat so we decided to skip the sit down restaurants. I ordered a Margherita pizza and it was pretty good, especially for €4.
A quick lunch in Erfurt on our 6 hour drive to Leipzig. Very beautiful small town!
