Fram arrived in Hamburg soon after dawn. Passengers disembarked in the cool, but it soon became a scorching hot day. Sailing back out of the city this afternoon, the deck was the place to be, not only for the breeze, but to see the properties along the banks, pleasure craft and locals enjoying the beaches along the Elbe River.
The new arrivals have their blue jackets, have done safety drill and enjoyed dinner. All are settled in for 'The Rivers of Western Europe' a journey south visiting ports in France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, and the Canary Island of Lanzarote.
