Unfortunately, we missed the last bus and instead we did a walking tour of the city. We walked along the river first, and then in through some of the canals. Hamburg is called the Northern Venice, as it has canals through the city
By the time we got back to the apartment it was time for dinner! We went to a Tapas Bar and completely pigged out on a huge assortment of tapas and their accompanying sauces . . . delicious! After dinner we drove around some more, where we drove through the Reeperbahn, which is Hamburg's red light district. Since it was a Sunday night, there wasn't all that much going on, and Sven and I did not go through the main street where only men are allowed. Since I stick out as an American tourist anyway, it would have been an uncomfortable situation as I wasn't there shopping . . . . it's one of those places where they get mad at you if you look but don't touch . . .
So from there we got some Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Ice Cream and went back to the apartment for a great finish to a wonderful day! Thanks to Steffi and Sven for the great hospitality!
