The only G-rated portion of this blog was dinner: In an effort to squirrel away some cash during this trip we have been eating many meals at grocery stores - I know fine European dining, right? Tonight it was Herring and tomatoes on German wheat bread with my favorite Chocolate, Ritler. bon appetite! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ritter_Sport
Tipping - And onto the reason half of you are reading this blog (And I realize I may be flattering myself in that anyone is reading this at all!) is how do you tip a European exotic dancer, and then a few notes on tipping in general. I was wondering this on the way to Hamburg as it is well known for its red light district. So, naturally we researched it further. To answer the question - like most European services taxes, tips, and surcharges are included in the price of admittance, food, and/or drinks and the finer establishments of Hamburg are no different. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euro_banknotes, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reeperbahn
A note on Fanny Packs - (Please excuse the on-coming vulgarity, but hey, it's Hamburg). Hint to prospective women travelers to Hamburg: Leave Fanny pack at the hotel, you can be mistaken for a Hamburg hooker as this is
how one distinguishes prostitutes (which is legal).
