Fascinating twilight at half past 8. We went into an Irish pub, hoping for Irish music, but there was none, neither live (as promised in the website) nor from the cd player. We had an Irish beer, and the place looked like a real Irish pub. But that was boring. We walked on. There was a restaurant by one of the canals which make the Hamburg city look a bit like a modern Venice. It was almost empty; was it due to the vacation, or do people hesitate to spend money at the moment? Eat and drink at home? Possibly so.
I was wearing my new jacket.
Later, in another familiar pub, we met friends and had a midnight coffee and cake in a gay pub. That was fun. At last.
