Flag of Germany  , Hamburg,
Friday, December 28, 2012

We go for a jog at 7 am and I am impressed with Hamburg harbour. Like Cape Town and San Francisco, the old blend with new, modern buildings. Mix the smell of diesel, boats (from a u-boat to a sailing ship and light house ship) - sea gulls - the unfinished opera house a beacon in the bay - this is a city we would to like to return too. Walter's hands are frozen (temperature is around zero)! We return to our apartment - shower, pack - then breakfast with Gerhard and Jennie in the lobby. They drive us to the airport.

We fly to Munich and then on to San Francisco and arrive late Friday evening.

The taxi drops us off at the Marriot in Columbus ave. They can't find our reservation in the system. Walter has to phone Marriot help line - how is it possible - he physically checked the room which I booked on the internet in September when he was in San Francisco for a conference. After 20 minutes and 2 phone calls - they find our reservation - at the Marriot Courtyard (about 200 m from this Marriot) - there are TWO Marriot hotels in Fisherman's warf!

Tired we pull our suitcases down the street - luckily the staff at the courtyard Marriot arevery friendly. We fall into bed more tha 25 hours after we got up in Hamburg! A very long day!
