Fritz Faass - Walter's cousin, picks us up at Hamburg airport and drives us to our apartment (Clipper Elbe lodge) at Fischmarkt. Modern apartment - very spacious - in an old building (exterior)! Fantastic location
Before our 4 pm appointment with his parents, Fritz drives the four of us through Hamburg on a guided tour. Then on to the old age home where Onkel Walter and Tante Marianne live. They look splendid! We also meet Bettina, Olaf and Nicki! All 11 of us are going for dinner at a lovlely restaurant at the Elbe. Goose and red cabbage (my favourite). Plums and ice cream for desert - lovlely red whine! Fritz drops us off at our apartments - we decide to go for a beer at the pub opposite to our apartments! We meet a friendly young couple and chat over beer. At the end of the evening we are best friends!
We are enjoying our holiday - eat way too much! Hamburg has a lovely harbour atmosphere - we would like to come again - perhaps when the new opera house is complete!
