Royal Welcome

QM2 welcomed in Hamburg Harbor (Spiegel Online) The world's largest and most expensive passenger ship, the Queen Mary 2, came to Hamburg for 24 hours, and it seems the entire city (plus a couple hundred thousand guests) played hooky on Monday to celebrate. School is on vacation, the weather was, well, acceptable (cloudy, cool, muggy, but dry), and it was a good excuse for a party. Hamburg has seen a lot a ships, but never anything like this.

We (especially Christopher) had a hard weekend, so we skipped the celebration, settling for the view from the Elbbrücken on the way to work, the television footage, and the dozens of pictures online.
