Wednesday December 22nd 2010
My main plan for the day was meeting my friend Anemone at the train station then she would tour around with me. Unfortunately she lives in Oldenburg and her ride here, to Hamburg, pulled out at the last minute.
|Rathaus (Town Hall)|
And Christmas Market in front.
Pretty much the tour metting place.
At the meeting spot I found much more than just our guide, Peggy. After three hours of learning as much about Hamburg as could and all freezing in the ever present slush and wind, I found some friends. As corny as it is, I’d say it’s true.
|Altstadt (old town, pretty much|
|more Altstadt, |
and it is about 11am,
and very overcast..
|St. Peter's Church|
|Impressive organ in St. Peter's |
Chruch. So impressive that
Bach was to play it,
but apparently he had to
pay the church to play it,
instead of the other way around.
needless to say, it is known as
the Organ Bach Did Not Play
Office building designed to look
like a boat.
Ya see it?
|Really old Hamburg|
We wandered from place to place along the Reeperbahn until we were too tired and cold to walk anymore. It was an excellent time, probably the best I’ve had on this trip.
|Hamburg the harbour city|
