I spent a day in Hamburg, Germany. By a random twist of Fate, I turned left out of the train station.
Had I turned right, I would have been caught up in all the glitz and prepackaged “German experience” for tourists. Going left took me into the areas populated by the local folks. This included a corner market, a delightful bakery, and a beautiful little church built from brick.
There are two large churches in Hamburg also built from brick.
This is the church of St. Peter, which dates all the way back to the 11th Century.
This is the church of St. Catherine, dating from the 13th Century.
Amazing, isn’t it, that brick could last a thousand years?
If you ever get the chance to go to Germany, do it. I took the train there (this was the same summer I spent in the Netherlands), so I watched the landscape rolling by. Fairy tale beautiful, I swear. B also stands for the Black Forest, home of so much legend and folklore!
