AFT Doctor Who: The Doctor and I in Saxon Switzerland

Today the Doctor paid me another unannounced visit, and I took the opportunity to show him how beautiful the landscape is just one hour away by train from Dresden. It is called Saxon Switzerland and from the pictures you surely will understand why!

What was funny that at the beginning at the train station, someone saw me doing pics with the Doctor but thought he was Ken (from Barbie). Then we met him and his girl two more times - later the day at the Bastei Bridge, and in the evening in the train back home again. And each time he asked me: "Where's the Ken?"

In the next picture you can see how part of a sandstone mountain has broken off:

The bridge in the background is called Bastei bridge and is one of the main touristic places. When I sat the Doctor there to take a picture, one woman commented how someone had left her doll accidentally there, but another man set her straight saying: "No, it's art!" and, after watching me, took a few pictures of the Doctor himself. Wonder where those might end up LOL

Down in the valley is the River Elbe:

Am I not living in a beautiful landscape? I mean, really. Anyone want to come visit? The valley of the River Elbe is also a canyon carved in several hundreds and thousands of years.
