    September 29th, 2010

    First business trip is in the loop. I have to get up at 4.00AM to get my flight to Toulouse. I hope I will not fall into sleep in one of the workshops or even worse in the evening Program. I heard something about bowling which would be the third time since I started working *g*.  Back flight is on FR over Amsterdam – meaning one more landing and start. Chris, Graeme, Caro where are you – I’ll first in the red light district. Oh that’s a good hint… the picture on the left in showing a sign which you can find all over metro station here. For the foreigners – it remembers you that there are no weapons allowed and that it is not permitted to have a glass bottle on the streets at FR, SA, SO and holidays. If you buy one of these you get an plastic cup to decant. I love St. Pauli 🙂

    Oh the newest family member (the lens) is back from the hospital and the first fast test shots are nice and sharp. Have to test it on SO a bit more so please cross fingers for good weather. So I have to go to bed – I should be awake to make some nice jokes in the airplane.

    New Toy

    September 25th, 2010

    Another week in Hamburg is over and a new member for my camera bag arrived. Problem – it is not 100% healthy or for the experts I think it has a front focus. Si next Monday before work i have to carry it to the camera doc to fix this little problem. Nevertheless, it is possible to make pictures with the lens. Small example here – I hope there will be a little bit sun the next weeks.
    Work getting still better and better and yes for me is more and more stress = more and more fun. At Wednesday I should see an airplane from inside – first time after Africa. I will have a business trip to Toulouse for three day to meet the whole transnational team. The most of the people should be in my age so I’m hoping for a lot of fun 😉 – if not I have to make one of my airplane jokes on the return flight *ggg*. I will let you know which one.


    St. Pauli vs HSV

    September 19th, 2010

    Today was the big football match between FC St. Pauli and HSV – both teams from Hamburg. The stadium not far from my flat and I forgot to buy some food yesterday. So the easiest solution – I ordered online a Pizza. After 1,5h hours waiting without Pizza but a lot of football fans in front of my windows which tried to kill one another I called the pizza service. Problem was – the area was closed by the police and it was not possible to deliver anything… Year, I went down and had a Burrito in the restaurant in my house. First time that I was in closed district. Maybe not my day, tried also to order a new lense but right now I’m not realy sure if I managed it or not. So waiting for an answer of the shop.

    Hamburg – First Impressions

    September 17th, 2010

    First Month in Hamburg is over and I’m still here 😉 – so can’t be too bad. No seriously Hamburg is great, maybe Hamburg is overall the best City in Germany. Don’t get me wrong I miss my friend in Stuttgart, I love Munich for the flair and the people in Berlin are great but overall Hamburg have a very good mixture. The only thing I will never get used to: THE FUCKING WEATHER. Think we had today 15 times rain, at least 5 times horizontal.

    Work getting better and better every day – meaning more and more stress, meetings and MSOffice. Won yesterday the bowling team price and was on the 3rd place in the single tournament – Got some chocolate and a small Airbus ball which I can use to hit my colleges now ;). What sucks is that I have still no Laptop, Username and Batch to enter the Airbus area. So I’m still a visitor on a student PC with an account of a college.

    Last point for today is my lovely photography. After I sold at least 70% of my stuff I miss something not all but still something. So I will change the situation and buy a new Tele lense. Canon was nice and comes up with a brand new 70-200 2.8 L IS II which is much better than my old Hansy. So please think of a new name and I’m looking for a good one and a good price ;). Meanwhile, I made some pictures with my wide angle.
