Hamburg-Harburg has a great little market with a nice village atmosphere. Vivien was doing the flowers for James and Mel's wedding so we all headed in to buy flowers. The fresh produce was awesome.

I was impressed by the cherries and berries and amazed by how cheap they were. James told me that there is an enormous orchard just out of Hamburg called Alte Land (the blue lines are irrigation channels). We also had delicious curry wurst and hot chips from the van man.

Getting Phones and Doing Washing

One day we went to the phone shop - Viv which doesn't seem too thrilled about in this photo.

Then we did our washing at the laundromat and drank beers while we waited; because we could - Viv seemed to prefer this activity

Vivien does the wedding Flowers

We helped Vivien buy and forage for flowers in Mel's Families' gardens; in the rain. Then the next day stayed at our apartment ate delicious food and helped out as best we could while Viv made the posies and the table settings.
