Day 36: Color Your World: Spring Green
Kettenkarussell auf dem Frühlingsdom
Frühlingsdom (Spring Fun Fair) in Hamburg. Only in Hamburg the Dom is not a cathedral, but a big fun fair that takes place in spring, summer and winter. Having grown up in a protestant area, my children were surprised to learn that elsewhere, e. g. in Cologne, a Dom is just a big church. (What a let-down… ) Foreigners also get confused. A Finnish translator asked about a passage in a German novel, because she thought it was about something happening in the cathedral. Murders are committed in other places around here.
