A Week in Hamburg


First off, I would like to wish everyone back home a very Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!  I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend :)

As for me, I have been in Hamburg for just over a week now and I have tons to share!  I spent most of my week getting settled in, but I did get to go out and explore a bit.  I was able to go to one of Hamburg's many outdoor markets, I experienced a bit of Oktoberfest in Hamburg (though the big celebrations are all in the South - oh well), I saw 'Filth' at the Hamburg Film Festival, I visited the Entertainment/Red Light/Clubbing district, I went to the famed Hamburg Fischmarkt (fishmarket), I rode a ferry from Hamburg Harbour, and I went on a Harbour Boat Tour of Hamburg!  Now I could continue to describe everything in more detail, but I would rather show you.  So without further ado...
