I’ve added new pictures to the Germany section of my site. They are from a weekend trip I took to Hamburg in May. My wife, Jenny, was working for two weeks at a hospital in Hamburg testing medical devices for her company, Stereotaxis. I joined her for the middle weekend of her business trip, and we had a great couple days. We wandered everywhere, from the Reeperbahn to the Alster. We were very lucky to be in Hamburg the weekend of the Hafengeburtstag, the celebration of the birthday of the Port of Hamburg, commemorating the date in 1189 when Emperor Barbarossa granted Hamburg the right to be a free port. Hamburgers rightly celebrate the proclamation, which is the direct cause of Hamburg being a world-class port, even to this day. Russian tall ships, street vendors, and general merriment ruled the weekend.
So please enjoy the new pictures! There will be more pictures of Alaska soon, too.
