|Queen Mary II with exhibition and |
sales tents in front
|I guess I'm too claustrophobic for a visit|
We saw the cruise liner Queen Mary II and heard the steamwhistles greeting her which is an exiting sound for me, reminding of my childhood when we lived in hearing distance from the harbour. We crossed the square where the Sunday morning market had taken place, walking through the lovely old streets of southern St.Pauli quarter.The building on the left belongs to the church and is a day home for children of the quarter. It is part of a site constructed from 1816 on; Napoleon had burnt down the whole place for strategic reasons. -- At last we reached the Paradise Court, one of the last remaining buildings from the time before 1800.

And I found something on the flea market close to it: A jumbo cup and a small saucer for about $9 both, displayed on one of my older quilts.
