Yesterday, J met his former colleagues, and we had a marvellous brunch. We went to Bergedorf, a small town, part of Hamburg since 1937, but somehow the Bergedorfers never gave up their spirit of independence. I lived there from 1968 thru 1983. My father was the "1st Vicar", but his job was not easy in this very conservative parish. He had some trouble after announcing in public that he would vote for the Social Democrats. -- After the brunch, we took a walk around the castle (the only castle in the Hamburg district) up to the hills where the villas are. This photo of the castle was made one year ago, and the picture of the church was taken by someone else.
By the way: I was NOT the daughter a vicar could ask the lord for.
