last year us girls saw michael borremans in brussels, today we're visiting hamburg downtown and throw in an exhibition. a first wander brings us to planten un blomen in the city centre. after the hot days we dare the muggiest hothouses, for coming out of 'em is such a delight. no more heat in the air!
hamburg has tall buildings, one such tall building is the presently under construction st. nikolai hauptkirche. i couldn't take my eyes of its towering height. it does make one wonder why a belfry needs to be so high? anyway, walk and talk we did. eat too, again. you guess it right... fish (and chips). we're considering chips as an annual-must-repeat as from today.
the weather turns since the heatwave and we sail from high blue skies and cloudy masses into heavy downpour back towards mild breezy hours under a wavering sun. museums on our list thus. having mercilessly failed an exhibition on water near the rathaus, we decide upon tattoos and today's images community in the museum für kunst und gewerbe, both excellently staged.
bidding goodbye is never easy, nor nice, really. therefore we only say tata, till the next time, soon, taking home reminders and memories. i am crawling through a good pile of images. i am working slowly, so i can relive moments. my last stop will be holland. more of hamburg here.
