Will you all stop chattering and face the camera. :-)

It was so nice to meet so many ex-Panoramians, now Ipernians. We had a superb couple of days, and I still didn't catch all of your names. Please add more notes for me.

Behaving a bit better now, but Lothar is still setting up his camera on a timer.

We're all looking very jolly. Could that be the effect of the Killepitsch? ;-)

Rats and sinking ship?

Had a lovely river trip with Klaus on Friday. These boats are water taxis making it possible for locals and tourists alike to hop on and hop off wherever they want to go. The whole transport system in Hamburg is fantastic and so easy to use. One travel ticket covers trains,underground, buses and boats + cheaper access into indoor attractions all over the city, and it's not expensive. Each river taxi has a theme and I think this one was advertising Hamburg Dungeon. Another we used had The Lion King theme that was currently running at Theatr im Hafren. London take note! No rats or humans were harmed during this photo-shoot. ;-) Our many thanks go to Klaus (Klaus 040) who made this trip so easy and so pleasurable for us.

Just strolling on Friday. HFF to you all.

And now for a piece of music which suits the mood. Joe Sullivan - Just Strolling (1935)

Once upon a time

Saturday Self Challenge: Invent a fairy tale and illustrate it. Once upon a time a good fairy came to Hamburg from the south of Germany. She looked at the industry and all the graffiti, and thought to herself, “Hamburg needs to be green again. I will create a magic potion which will make the air fresh and pure. People who take a sip of this special and magical drink will be happy and always healthy. Trees and green spaces will flourish throughout the city, and all will be perfect.” But there was one mistake in her spell, a serious flaw, which she hadn’t accounted for. The blue sky in Hamburg had touched part of the potion and rendered it turquoise. Es war einmal eine gute Fee, die aus dem Süden Deutschlands nach Hamburg kam. Sie schaute auf die Industrie und all die Graffitis und dachte sich: "Hamburg muss wieder grün sein. Ich werde einen Zaubertrank kreieren, der die Luft frisch und rein macht. Leute, die einen Schluck von diesem speziellen und magischen Getränk nehmen, werden glücklich und immer gesund sein. Bäume und Grünflächen werden überall in der Stadt gedeihen, und alles wird perfekt sein." Aber es gab einen Fehler in ihrem Bann, eine ernste Schwachstelle, die sie nicht berücksichtigt hatte. Der blaue Himmel in Hamburg hatte einen Teil des Trankes berührt und türkis gemacht. Moral: There’s many a slip twixt cup and lip. ;-) Moral: Es gibt viele Fehler zwischen Becher und Lippe.
