Florence & the Machine, a Düsseldorf post

“We are Florence & the Machine.  We have come from England.  And we have come for human sacrifices!”

Yes, I did indeed spend 16 hours round-trip, traveling from Greifswald to Düsseldorf and back.  Four trains there and two trains back.  I was bored out of my skull.  You can only spend so much time reading or working on lesson plans, y’know?  But it was soooo worth it.  Words cannot describe how utterly mind-blazingly fantastic Florence Welch and the band are in concert.  I want to see them again… and again… and again.

I had the opportunity to experience some of the city, too.  My lovely CS host, LT, was gracious enough to show me around:

It is said, that when the war ended, the children were so happy that they did cartwheels in the streets. A cartwheeling figure is now the unofficial symbol for this city.
