hamburg

I am in Hamburg. Before coming, I did a Google images search, and the results looked dreary and cold. It looked like a sterile port. For example:





But the city is actually gorgeous! The buildings look very well-preserved, and downtown is located right next to a peaceful lake.

I felt refreshed just from walking to my hotel, dragging my luggage after a eight-hour train ride from Prague.

My hotel told me they were giving me a free room upgrade. The room looks nice, but just like the standard room on the hotel web page. If I were running a hotel, I would tell every guest that I'm giving them a free upgrade, just to make them happier. I would keep a broom closet as the "non-upgraded room" so that it is still truthful.

Hamburg was almost destroyed during World War II but was rebuilt to match the pre-war city. I've always enjoyed Hamburg and its history. Best wishes.

Finally you made it to northern Germany. Cool :) Hope you're experiencing some cool things - even though the people up there are a little..well...hm. strange ;-))

Anyway. Beautiful city. But actually being from Berlin, I won't be allowed to admit that ;-)

Have fun! :)

A sterile port? The dock buildings in the first picture look like they're built out of Lego and cake!
