Whew! That sound is me being tired after the last few weeks, which have brought my birthday, the first few weeks of Kindergarten for Babycakes, his birthday and subsequent birthday party. Hence my neglecting the blog. My apologies! The next time life gets in the way, get your Flux fix on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Now–back to work!
For my birthday weekend, The Man and I took a train to Hamburg. I’d heard it’s a beautiful city, and I wasn’t disappointed. As Germany’s shipping capital, the influence of water, movement and travel was everywhere. I have a special place in my heart for port cities: New Orleans, San Francisco, LA. They’re like magnets that draw all kinds of people and energy to them. How else to explain the mixture of old and ultra modern? And I only scratched the surface. Hamburg is a city I’ll be going back to explore.
Tat’s Tip: If, like me, you think the best music ever is 90s R&B, then by all means check out Nu SoulCity, at the Stage Club and other venues. Seriously–I don’t go clubbing anymore, but I’d dust off my stilettos every month if this were in my city. The DJ played Zhane’, Aaliyah, Lucy Pearl and so much more greatness. Stellar R&B in Hamburg. Who’da thunk it?
