A very hot day

Today we got up and packed our bags up and headed to Torgau. It was another scorcher of a day and we were all melting in the heat. Once here we visited the castle and the bears that guard it. We climbed up to the top of the tower for a birds eye view as well. 

From here we took a walk over to see the church where Katarina Luther is buried. I was quite excited about this.

After this we drove to the tiny town of Nimbschen to see the cloister where Katy lived. Only a portion of it still stands but it was wonderful to stand there and imagine what it must have been like. We also had our devotions there, which was really neat. 

Finally, we ended in Leipzig where we will be for two nights. The hotel is fantastic and thankfully air conditioned. With the heat being so bad and knowing many hotels aren't air conditioned, I was most thankful for this. As if that wasn't good enough, the view from my window was stunning.

All in all it was a good day, though I was tired and hot so it isn't the most clear in my memory.
