The Chemnitz Christmas Market

Last December I made a trip to Chemnitz, Germany to visit a special museum exhibit. See: Life at the Dead Sea

In this picture you can also see some of the lines of huts where the vendors have their wares on display. Chemnitz is a larger city than Jena so the market was larger than what I am used to seeing.

I just realized that this trip to Germany was just a little over a year ago. Monday marked one year without taking a flight somewhere. I wonder how much longer it will be until my next travels.
