A hashpoint in Dresden, sunny weather, on a Sunday, hooray. I went by bike, starting northwards from my dorm and crossing the Elbe at the Waldschlösschenbrücke. I followed Stauffenbergallee, then turned into Königsbrücker Straße. That one was very long and cycling was a bit difficult because of the pavement. After a while I passed the airport and arrived near the hashpoint. The nearer I came the slower I went because I wanted to do this expedition on a tron route, even though the spot is in the middle of a large road.
I finally crossed the westbound lanes and got to the median strip, where the GPS told me I was 0.00004 degrees from the spot. I waited until there wasn't any traffic, then I went the last meters to the hashpoint, took a picture only 0.00001 degrees off and continued to the other side of the road before any cars came near. Hooray! After taking some pictures I continued my journey, taking a different route homewards. On the way back I cycled through the 'Neustadt' and to the historic center. Next to the Frauenkirche I watched the street artists and listened to a guy playing a grand piano. Then I cycled home, coming from the south in order to close the tron's circle.
