So, it's summer officially! I'm already in Deutschland (Germany), and very nearly over the jet lag. I hope to update you with fun anecdotes from my trip and photos periodically over the summer. I'm also working on getting the photoblog we did last summer going again, so stay tuned on that front.

For now, I'll recap my first day or two in Hamburg (and Germany). Hamburg is a nice port city in northern Germany. I was surprised to see how busy the port is, there's tons of cranes and containers all over as the city has a direct connection to the north sea. I also got a chance to see the World Press Photo exhibition which is currently up in the lobby of German Publishing company Gruner & Jahr. A lucky find wandering around.

We also stopped by the tunnel which runs under the harbor (~1 mile long). It's defunct now since it used a car elevator type lift, but still a lot of fun to walk/bike down. The weather has been standard European weather, cloudy and cold. This didn't seem to mar the festivities which occurred on Fathers Day yesterday.

The Germans are great, however, because this in not your typical fathers day. As it turns out, it falls on a Thursday and is actually a national holiday (Stores and schools close). This holiday should actually be called Bro Day, because literally the entire holiday entails guys getting together and getting smashed. That's it.

I frequently saw two guys carrying a case of beer between them down the road. One guy struggled to keep control of his bike as he flipped our train off with one hand and tried to steer with his beer in the other hand. Sounds like a great holiday doesn't it?

Well that's about all the excitement so far from Germany. For the next month or so I'll be roaming around the country, and then I have an internship in Munich. So stay tuned for more fun and fotos from Germany. Bis spater!
