Meeting Seumes at Leissling, near Leipzig

In August 2006, Renée and David toured part of Western Europe and, during the course of their holiday, stayed in Leipzig for a few days. The highlight of this visit was meeting, and being entertained by, Frank and Karin Seume at their home in Leissling, a few kilometres west of Leipzig.

Several of the photographs taken at the time are displayed here:
