Hamburg is a really neat town. It reminds us a lot of Boston in some ways. It seems a lot more modern than other places we’ve visited (like pretty much most of Bavaria). I suppose that’s due in large part to bombings during World War II, but it seems like there have been pretty destructive fires in large parts of the city not connected to wars. So that’s good. I guess.
We have been very busy taking in the sights and smells:
- a spice museum in the warehouse district out on the canals
- the [St. Michaelis](http://www.st-michaelis.de/) church
- a harbor tour
- a bus tour around the city
- visited countless Christkindlmarktplätze
I’m writing from an internet cafe on our last day here before we head to London. We’re in a part of town where the university is and we’re headed to an art museum next. Then, if we have time before heading out to the airport, we’re headed to [Miniatur Wunderland](http://www.miniatur-wunderland.com/) — a museum containing the world’s largest model train setup.
I’ll try to write again from London and I’ll post photos on the Regensblog when we get back.
