No diving to report this week since too many people were away, myself included. These words come to you from Hamburg, reached via Lübeck, Berlin and Leipzig and I’m now writing this in the Hamburg Holiday Inn room 406 believe it or not.
Brian tells me the Energy may be on next Friday – I trust the tides are friendly – and for those asking – yes we are still planning Cyprus for Eid Al Adha.
For anyone planning to visit a German city, a few simple rules:
1. Cars stop for pedestrians and bicycles.
2. Pedestrians obey the go/don’t go lights even when there’s nothing coming.
3. Bicycles stop for nobody.
I think maybe 3 explains 2.
Also some words mean different things… see below.
The Dive Bar will be open as normal Tuesday night – I assume that the swimming pool repairs are still ongoing and that access will still be through the changing rooms rather than the blue glass doors.
I won’t be around unless you can keep the bar open until 2am – send me an SMS if you manage it. Otherwise I’ll catch up with those around over the next few days.
