    The Frogster has landed! The fifth stop of its world tour: Mainz, Germany. I'm glad the DHL driver found the house through the fog.
    Unpacked it after I came home from work:

    Documenting the accuracy: At arrival here, it runs 1m 8s fast. Here's a comparison shot to a GW-9010 Mudman that synced to atomic time
    about 15 minutes before.

    OK, it's not the biggest watch for today's fashion- but it fits my 6.7" wrist well, and it wears very comfy:

    I took the Frogster as an excusion to do a trip to Germanys second largest city, Hamburg.

    I arrived in the old warehouse area which is called Speicherstadt and made a walk in direction of the floating peers "Landungsbrücken" where all the touristic ship travel is at home.




    A Frogster watching at the Hamburg habor follys.



    Older habor round trip boats in standby:



    Look back to the warehouse quarter:



    Just another historic fireship, boring!



    50s museum ship Cap San Diego, very stylish! Compare this to todays boxy merchant ships....



    Just another big sailing ship, boring. :D





    Frogster and me entering the habor ferry to make a short trip down the river Elbe:



    Look from the ferry to floating peer, Mississippi style tourist boat in front. Dont know who decided to have one of those here.



    Some photos from the journey down the Elbe:







    Arrival at the museum habor, i left the ferry here and drove back to the city by bus:







    Back at the Landungsbrücken i visited the old river tunnel which is build 1910 and is still operating. Cars have to enter the tunnel by elevator!




    Look down the elevator shaft (with stairs for pedestrians):



    Car elevator misused for pedetrians and bikers, the guy with the white hat is the operator.



    Tunnel tube (one of two, the other one is currently under refurbishḿent).



    Frogster in front of the car elevator.



    Sun down impressions from the habor:




    Then something very special, the Hamburg adult entertainment area "Reeperbahn".
    Since here is almost every Adult to Adult Entertainment legal, its very hard to make a photo which is compliant to forum rules. 8-)



    Anyhow, i hope this low resolution photo of a less explicit display gives a picture. :)



    Some old advertising for a defunct club:



    Time to go back to the car and cool down my burning feet!

    i just love looking at these pictures. so awesome! from the amazing building designs to the ships to the car elevator and of course, the Reeperbahn!
