So, Munich is so last week. Now we’re in Hamburg. I’ve brought you all with me. Aren’t you glad to be coming along?
Here’s a photo of one of my favourite buildings in the city…really. I have so many good memories of arriving here. Want to know more about the building? Here’s the wikipedia page:
Now we’ve left the station, but we’re still nearby. I’m fascinated with masonry of any kind, so you’re going to get a lot of photos of the sides of buildings. If you’re not into that sort of thing, come back next week. More importantly, who’s not into that sort of thing? What’s wrong with you?
I wish this weren’t a Starbucks now…sigh…
Very beautiful churches here, even if they are sometimes a bit austere. More photos of churches are also in your near future.
More masonry…you sick of this yet? Hope not.
This is a ‘lounge’ with several of these little infants on the wall. What’s the meta message here? I don’t like the looks of this Sodom and Gomorrah stuff.
It’s been rainy most of the time since I arrived. Aside from a few fleeting moments of sunlight, one might think it only rains here. Not complaining…I love walking in the rain.
Ok…how was that for a first chapter of the trip to Hamburg? On the itinerary for today? Fischmarkt, that church I showed you above, and some serious culinary adventuring. Who’s coming with?
Come on, don’t be shy.
This is VERY EXCITING. These are gorgeous. I’m liking Hamburg.
Google tells me “Spitalerstrasse” is “Hospital Road.” Really? It sounds fancier in German. That’s disappointing, English.
I like those guns. It’s like whoever painted them wasn’t trying too hard. They *tried*, just not very hard. “Here we sell the guns. I painted some on the wall. Kind of.”
I’m very excited for today. Fischmarkts! Churches! Fancy food! Hamburg’s really shaping up nicely. Good job, Hamburg. Good job, Bon Vivant in Hamburg.
~sigh~ I don’t know which church that is, but it reminds me of Wernerkapelle in Bacharach. What a gorgeous place.
Thanks KB. I’ll be talking moire about that church in the future. It’s the Michel and is one of the most distinctive towers in Hamburg’s skyline.
