Back from up North

We had Christmas down here and New Year’s up in Neumuenster. The holidays are over and although they’re fun and it’s nice to have some time off, it’s also good to be home. I’ve got a few more days before I have to work, so I hope I can really enjoy it. My first tour of the year will be to Salzburg, which is quite dead in January, mostly because it’s so cold. We went sight-seeing around Hamburg and have a bunch of pictures that I should post soon, but laziness is kicking in so maybe tonight. I will say this: Hamburg’s Zoo is a rip-off, Neumuenster’s zoo is really cool, although fairly small, and Hamburg’s Rathaus is a must-see.
