My last day in Hamburg

Well, today was my last day in Hamburg. The day started with home made croissants and fresh fruit. Jennifer is such a great cook. Then we went for a tour of the Town Hall, known in Hamburg as the Rathause. Here is a picture of it during the day, and one of it at night. It is beautiful inside and out. The Town Hall is just a few rooms short of being as large as Buckingham Palace in London. The rest of the day was spend shopping for souvenirs and taking in as much of Hamburg as I could. Before dinner, we walked down to the Alster, a large body of water in the middle of the city. The US Consulate building sits right on the water. They call it the little white house.

We finished the night at Franziskaner for dinner.

I have really enjoyed my trip to Germany, and would come back next week if I could. This has been one of the best vacations I've ever been on. I'm so glad that I was able to come, and thankful for the opportunity. Hopefully one day I will be able to come back, and bring Andrew with me. Thank you Jennifer for a showing me around your city, and for being such a great travel buddy. You have been a wonderful hostess, and I am so blessed you have you as a friend.
