Sailing on the sea of space and time to take today
Waves of dancing dreams it seems you're drifting back my way
My heart was like a lonesome drummer beating endlessly
Your love was like a lighthouse beacon in my memory
(Rawlins Cross - Rockaway)
This weekend, I only worked the evening shift on Saturday. I went to Altona with a friend who wanted to buy some equipment at the Calumet store. Altona is my favourite borough of Hamburg - there are lots of shops and restaurants, among them the African restaurant Tropical Point, which I've recommended before. My friend Michal recently convinced me to give the "StadtRAD" a try. The StadtRAD isn't the coolest-looking bicycle that I could imagine, but it's a great innovation nevertheless. There are hire stations throughout the entire city and the first half hour is without charge. If you're planning to visit Hamburg, I'd recommend to sign up online. I haven't replaced the road bike that got stolen last spring, so I enjoyed our ride from Altona to Wandsbek - we rode past street art, saw several Volkswagen T3 Syncro vans in awesome condition, and last but not least, enjoyed the view across the Alster Lake. Later that night we celebrated a friend's birthday at a pool hall. I played regularly in England, so I owned the other guys. I didn't have a hangover this morning and there wasn't anything to do, which is why I drove down to Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg to the abandoned engine shed (Google Maps: "53.511781,10.005753"). It's a favourite among urban explorers in Hamburg.
