Since Shelby had training on some new nerd machine in Bremen this week, we managed to meet in Hamburg for a weekend of sightseeing.
Although Winter Storm Dennis brought in some crazy bitter wind, we mostly lucked out on weather with only a few sprinkles. Colette picked out an AirBNB apartment on historic Diechstrasse street (dike street), perfectly situated for walks to all of the good stuff Hamburg has to offer.

Shelby waits as I run down to get my Elbe Tunnel photo. Little did she know I’d sneak up the elevator and catch her chimping some photos!
