Travel: visiting Hamburg

Hello friends,  Last month I flew to Hamburg for a long weekend, to explore the city and  celebrate a friend's birthday.

We arrived early morning Thursday, taking a red-eye from NYC to Germany. 

Hamburg is a bicycle city, women in dresses, men in suits... they bike to work.  It's such an odd sight, at 7:30am, to see 50+ bicycles at a stoplight when you look out the taxi window.

After dropping off our luggage and enjoying a European breakfast, we climbed to the top of the church tower behind our hotel, a lovely 360 view.

I remember seeing Lake Alster from the tower, it looked like it was ten miles away but was less than a mile walk from our hotel.
