Day 3 Hamburg

Tuesday  Dateicon  31.7.2012  Tigericon  0km

Second day in Hamburg. We sleep in until 9PM and hit the town.

We started at Automuseum Prototyp, a car museum with it's primary exibits being Porches and racing.
Amongst other things they had the first F1 car Mikael Schumacher drove which was a Ford Cosworth which was a bonus since we're both a bit soft for Fords.

After that we went down to St Pauli Fishmarkt and a uboat-museum which isn't really a "museum" all things considered.
It's very real Russian submarine which was in active duty until the year 2000 that you can crawl around in to your hearts desire which we most definately did.
As often as we could get away with it humming the national hymn of the Soviet Union and since the Bear just happened to have the hunt for red october (which is a cineatic masterpiece by the way) on his phone so we also got a healthy dose of The hymn for the Red October.
The whole thing was obviously a very juvenile spectacle but it was immensely enjoying and since we practically had the boat to ourselves it did no harm.

After that we at lunch at a fish restaurant at the fishmarkt.
I ate fried flounder with a baked potato and a dunkel weissbier.

We went on a pretty boring ride on a tour bus and spent the rest of the afternoon and evening at the open air bars on the Reeperbahn.
(For those of you who have your preconceptions stuck in the 80's the Reeperbahn is a bar district nowadays even if it still has a few quirky additions.

There was a couple of droplets when we where on the bus (a double decker with no roof on the top) but we didn't even get wet really so pretty much a rain free day, hopefully one of many,
