Captured a moment

Captured this moment in the "HarborCity" part of town. Awww, sweet.

HarborCity (or "HafenCity" if you prefer) is a massive urban development effort in Hamburg. It looks pretty impressive. It was pretty quiet when I was there, but they say weekends are pretty hoppin'; the area will have a snazzy skyline once they complete the Elb Philharmonie building.

The transport system here continues to befuddle me. Berlin was much easier to navigate! The signage was clear, maps were everywhere, everything was self-explanatory. In Hamburg, by comparison, you have to determine how many zones you'll cross to get to your destination, and the maps are a confusing mish-mash of lines and boxes. Luckily they offer an unlimited tourist transport pass, so I can just take any bus or train I want for three days. Oh yeah… apparently there are ferries that are in the public transport system, so those are included in my pass, too. (Hamburg has lots of canals and waterways!)

My sleep schedule is still pretty messed-up. But it's getting a little better. My allergies definitely have gotten a lot better.

I took a nice long walk through Lange Reihe today… it was gorgeous out. So far the weather has mostly cooperated with me! Lots of people were out and about.

Other than that, I did a little grocery/toiletry shopping, picked-up a train ticket (more on that soon), had a nap… lots more but I'll post more later.

For now, I'm off to bed.
