We were going to repeat the pattern of taking one day off the road in Hamburg. But Cranky told us at the last minute that she wouldn’t be home for a couple of days, so we ended up spending almost a week there, at my friend Louisa’s place.
First evening we went to a concert and some dancing. I went to bed at midnight!
On the second night, we went to some sort of circus training place. It’s lots of fun.
The day after that was playground day, with Sinja, another long-time friend.
In the evening, we went to a cute little park where Weirdo drank beer with his alcoholic friends and I amazed the crowds with my skateboarding skills. So much that a professional photographer materialized out of nowhere and wasted a whole SD card on me.
That got me tired a little, we slept at Sinja’s place.
The next day was spent in the city center, where there was the most awesome bubble show in history.
Another photographer showed up and started taking pictures. With a camera that has chemical film in it! I thought they’d stopped making those a few generations ago!
The day after that, we took part in an indigenous ritual with some friends that I’ve known half my life:
And that was it. Road was calling. We packed up and left.
