Just on the upswing of recovering from jet lag and it’s off to Germany. After 36 hours of traveling I finally made it to Hamburg. My first day in Germany was absolutely incredible! Cindy and Lara met me at the airport and we took a bus to Cindys house and I got a shower and had a chance to rest a bit then we went down to the waterfront. It just so happened that we got there on the day that the world championship diving competition was taking place. The divers would jump off of the mast of a ship into the water doing flips and spins. It was absolutely incredible, much better than watching it on TV during the olympics. We walked around town for quite a while, had some coffee and then went home to rest. We slept for about four hours and then went out again to get falaffles at a little walk-in resturant followed with a tour of downtown at night. Do I hear culture shock? Haha, needless to say, the nightlife in Hamburg is much different from Valdez and a LOT different from Indonesia considering that neither of those places even posess a nightlife. We had a great time and, well gosh dad, you were right and flaffles are incredible!
