We went for a long walk. It was really, really nice outside. It's spring. There were so many people! Some were walking their dog, some were pushing babies in strollers, there were other kids on bikes, scooters and skateboards. Everyone was outside!
First we walked through the neighbourhood. The houses in Nina and Pete's neighbourhood look a lot like this one below. They are apartment buildings. People here live mostly in apartment buildings. The cars are tiny! Look!
Did you know that the "HH" on the license plate stands for "Hansestadt Hamburg"? That means everyone knows that any car with HH on the license plate is from Hamburg. NEAT!
Afterwards, we walked towards the big lake in the middle of the city. It's called the "Alster". We saw ducks and geese and boats. It was really windy. The boat nearly blew over!
The lake is so popular, there is even a tour bus that drives around it for tourists. The sightseeing city bus tour is called, "Stadtrundfahrt".
We were getting a little hungry and a little tired after all that walking, so we headed back towards home. Here are some of the signs of spring we passed along the way:
My favourite part of the afternoon was stopping to get my favourite food at the grocery store: PIZZA!
Later this week, we'll look at what things people do for fun in Hamburg.
Did you know that Hamburg has TWO soccer teams? WOW!! I can't wait to learn more and share it with you.
Have a great week from Pete and Nina in Hamburg!
