It all started in this March climbing trip to Italy on a terrible shady, windy belay in a mountain wall where we had to wait for hours, because the climbers in front of us were uncapable.
To keep me occupied I started to sing (or whatever you would call it) old pop-songs. There is no real English word for what I mean. (In German Schlager). Music you usually don't sing around with the people I've known so far. But it is my secret, or better, it was.
I love to sing out really loud to some of those songs.
And so did my young climbing friend. I couldn't believe it!!!
So today we met with some other of her friends for the Schlagermove Hamburg 2008. Trucks driving very slow, sounding pop-songs very loud, people dancing, singing, jumping, laughing all over the place.
The weather was fantastic and Hamburg near the harbour anyway.
The melon was our orientation sign :-)
The last picture is taken on my very favorite spot in Hamburg. High above over the river Elbe and the Landungsbrücken on the hilltop in front of the Youth Hostel.
