Passing Fischmarket
(Blohm und Voß Docs in the far)
we reached "Das weisse Hotel"
which is next to river of Elbe in the West of Hamburg .
All big Ships pass our window on their way into the world.
A real nice place to be

The reason for our tour is that in Hamburg we joined the
"58. Internationale Schnauferlrallye" towards Sylt, which is
FIVA Weltrallye 2013
(Edit: Day 4)

Sadly the weather turned worse and rain a little over freezingpoint
aint funny (for the open cars).

Here the "Chenard and Walcker - Le Mans" for sure is faster
than the early OPEL

I am just greatly impressed with the conditions of the roads, they all look like new. Keep posting it is very interesting.

Most of Europe is blessed with not having empty beer cans & empty fried chicken & hamburger paper bags thrown all along the sides of the countryside roads like we have in the U.S.

Also not many people driving around on their tiny spare tires with dented fenders, one headlight, & having transluscent polyethelene film, (visqueen), taped with duct tape to the the rear & side auto window frames.

Thanks for sharing the very beautiful scenery, well kept real estate, & well kept vehicles everywhere!
