After a day in the saddle, back to the airport and off to Hamburg for another conference.
ANd the bright, modern interior.
FIrst bike tour of the city on Pfingtsmontag.
And people enjoying the sun and the green space.
The inner lake right in the heart of Hamburg.
A ferry terminal and plaza on the river.
And always the river anchoring the city to its history and geography. Good by to Hamburg and time to fly home again!.
And to my favorite hotel (so far) anywhere. Side, a super modern and cool design hotel in downtown Hamburg.
Any guesses what this is?
Hamburg is green and outdoor happy.
Nad back to Side with my trusty Bike Friday.
Home to SLC, not quite as simple as the map suggests and certainly not as quickly!
Yes! Gives "lowering the lid" a whole new incentive.
With a lot of outdoor art, here at the city library.
Another ride, this time along the Elbe River, which flows through the City
And a giant stature of Bismark! See Biele in the lower right corner for size reference.
And from the 6th floor near my room.
And eccentrics galore.
Found some quiet paths in lovely suberban neighborhoods along the river.
The hallway to my room.
The one oddity of Side are the slabs of beef hanging in the wall
Classice view of the main lake inside the city.
A view from the bridge. The suspended blobs are an artefact from the iPhone panorama photo. Art?
Old and new
