    Default bade farewell to

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    In a very short press briefing on Monday, Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared to take the blow of Ole von Beust's resignation with good nature, but she took no questions from reporters as she bade farewell to the outgoing premier of the city-state of Hamburg.

    bade farewell to = said goodbye to

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Yes, but it's "goodbye" not "good-by".
