hamburg again

when i met L, i was living in hamburg, he in berlin. he then loved to play the song by german band lassie singers about my former town. there is this line where they sing about the big boats, sleeping at the harbour. today i wanted to see them.
i am here again for work.
this afternoon after a sunday fitting i walked to the harbor, craving for a real fischbrötchen with matjes, finally beeing able to see the city from a neutral point of view. my personal history related to this city fading slowly away, discovering its beauty again, like when i arrived nearly 20 years ago to start my own life in a new city.
it has been a wonderful warm summer day, very rare in this rough city.

and i will live here for the next weeks with one of my closest friends and her family in an apartment where i literally like everything.
