Hello Ramstein, Capt. Spanky here. I really do love traveling around Germany and Europe, but I have to say, there is nothing like the sight of Airmen standing guard at the gate when returning to Ramstein. Anyways, this week my human and I got out to Leipzig. If you've never heard of it, Leipzig is known for its vibrant arts and culture scene shaped by famous music composers like Bach, Richard Wagner and Felix Mendelssohn. In fact, the reason I wanted to go in the fi rst place was to see where Bach spent his time when he was alive. Now, I usually like music that I can howl to, but there is something about Bach's music that makes my hind leg shake. While we were there, we were lucky enough to hear Bach's music played at the St. Thomas Church where Bach once served as choir leader and is now buried. Leipzig had more to do than we could have done in a single weekend, so we will probably have to return some day, but we were able to visit the Napoleonic Monument to the Battle of the Nations, the Old Town Hall, the botanical garden and generally just roam around and explore. The places were amazing the people were friendly and the food was delicious. I give the whole experience two paws up.
