how do you say…

Waiting to board one of the three flights I have today.

This trip back will not be as fun as the journey here. Sadly, Hamburg didn’t have direct flights to Vancouver.

Yesterday was a fairly low-key day. Spent some time wandering the main city centre, and shops. Visited the historic part of Hamburg, the town hall was really stunning. I was curious how damaged the city was from WW2. Nobody I asked seemed to know, so I’ll have to research it.

While out walking in the day, I stumbled across the same exact purple chair I saw at the V&A Museum in London. Well, technically the shop the manufactures it, but still how strange!

In the evening we went back to the pub, and listened to more great music and I met a few more of Anna’s friends – also music lovers. Fantastic conversation, and at one point we were borrowing scrap pieces of paper/napkins and writing out a list of artists, unknown to each other. So now I have a list of German bands to check out and I left a few audiophiles in Hamburg with a giant list of Canadian indie rock artists. Wonderful way to cap off the trip.

Oh, and Anna got me to wear lipstick (it didn’t last too long), and here’s a video I shot where I was trying to get her to translate the warning labels on the cigarette pack, and she gets a bit lost in translation…

    Your evening with fellow musicophiles sounds wonderful, What a great cultural exchange that was. A moment to remember, for sure.
