  • Bremen: New wheel, new zeal
    • 09/06/2017
Bremen, Bremen, is my wheel here?
No, as I have not properly understood the German post restante service, so the parcel has been sent back to Dresden.
Anyway, pretty tired after a week without a break since Amsterdam, so I used the planned day off to sort out flights and insurance for Africa, and generally rest, as well as registering with Deutsche Post and reordering to hopefully a correct address.... Find out tomorrow.
Anyway, today was Wednesday, I did sightseeing things, going to the marvellously quiet Kunsthalle gallery, which contained a good variety of paintings and sculptures, including Rodin, Munch, Monet, Manet, van Gogh, and the usual Renaissance over the top religious crap with cherubs everywhere.
Then took a stroll through the rather nice neighborhood of Viertel where every shop seems to be decorated with a mural relating to its wares, whilst the alleyways are full of street art, posters and stickers, all very bohemian and nice architecture too, although one alley turned out to be a mini red light district!

Standing in the market place of old Bremen you are surrounded by intricately decorated churches, rathaus, beerkeller, and many other nice looking buildings - these seemingly original unlike a lot of the town centre rebuilt after the war... This and the adjacent narrow wynds are tourist central, although after about 9pm seems pretty much deserted, I guess the late night bar scene is elsewhere, but I'm not going to look for it!

When I got back to the hostel dorm this afternoon, a guy was sat meditating in the lotus position so hopefully a zen night with no snorers - or farters... (Don't ask) Earplugs on standby.

Thats after I get back from the cinema - watching Fast and Furious 8 - auf Deutsch. Whoops. Why do they have to dub everything, what's wrong with subtitles!
Should be good for a laugh though. The cinema is completely empty....
It was all car chases, I doubt the dialog would be very memorable..

Today is Friday, and today I GOT THE WHEEL! And relax. Quick test of the USB charging seems to work, and I've legged it to another hostel to escape the rain, and plan for the future now that life can go on!
