HafenCity Hamburg is a project of city-planning where the old port warehouses of Hamburg are being replaced with offices, hotels, shops, official buildings, and residential areas.

The Elbphilharmonie Hamburg (nicknamed Elphi) is a concert hall under construction in the HafenCity quarter of Hamburg, Germany. The concert hall is designed by Herzog & de Meuron on top of an old warehouse (Kaispeicher A). It will be the tallest inhabited building of Hamburg, with a final height of 110m

After an unsuccessful visit in Kobenhavn (the capitain couldn´t  anchored in case of strong dangerous current in the sound) we had an extraordinary long stopover in Olso.

  ……… boring…..to boring for a gecko like me….. Fortunately I discover a norwegian quayside bar ….. and I enter…….hmmm,  dimly lit and awesome objekts at the counter….the right atmosphere for me.
As they notice me, suddenly the noise from the guests stops…. It seems, they havn´t seen a seagecko before… As more I told from my adventures on the seven seas on board the QM2, as more the ice is melting between the seagecko and this nice awesome people; and one beer follow the other ….than ginn  ännd woadkka  ännd rrrummmm…..ääännt mooor pjuur  rrummmm ….hicks…
Äännnht  tshee losst oofff mmmaaii  mmotshherrrrrlängguiitsch…hicks…..

The steward told me, that  a hand full of awesome objekts entered the QM2 last night to bring  a gecko home and he reported me from the pub brawl he read in the norwegain newspaper  “Dagens Næringsliv” this morning….. that can explain my headache this morning.. B)

after another day on the rough sea, we arrived back in Hamburg :thinking:
