Okay, so I can't count. Really the last Magdeburg post...

My last day in Magdeburg was spent shopping (everything's closed on Sunday for the secular day-of-rest). My first stop was the game store I'd heard so much about: they have normal Warhammer stuff (games, books, miniatures), but also a large selection of LARP garb and hard ciders. Very nice: some of the leather pieces were very reasonably prices (I resisted the gauntleted gloves). I don't know a lot about ciders, but people were gushing over them at the con. The labels are fannishly cute.

Next: the big pet store. My sister (the dog-sister) loves German leather: leashes, collars, bridles, etc. When she went to Crufts a few years ago, that's what she brought back a bunch of. They had a nice selection, so I picked out a few nice pieces for her (I -so- owe her for all the dog advice, training and help she give me). This was a particularly complete store: they had a large aquarium/fish section, reptile and terrarium creatures and supplies (including some nasty-looking feeder-bugs). And of course, plenty of fru-fru pet supplies (fancy beds, houses, bowls, etc.) I got R0ndo a rain vest and a floaty-thing.

After this I raced back to the hotel, threw out a few running good-byes and dashed to the train station to get to the airport. Actually made it to the Leipzig-Halle Airport with enough time to spare that I could grab some food and peek into the gift store. I ws amused by the "Korn" brand liquor (not sure what kind it is, but apparently it's, "Rein und Mild".

The flight back to Frankfurt was uneventful (yay), but I was interested in a couple of things I saw on the ground (from the plane). One was a mound in the middle of a barren field. The mound was domed and nearly symmetrical, with a thin path that led across the plowed field to the road (quite a ways-- nearly a mile?). Was this an archeological site? Mysterious...

The other eye-catching sight were the huge, maze-like building (apartment?) complexes in the former DDR part of Germany.
