Sven, I heard from our (now)-mutual friend Mr. Christiansen.

He send me a PDF of his latest menu.

Care to discuss his Hamburg Fishmarkt bar...?



Ha, cool! Yeah, I am waiting for them to send me the menu, then I'll post about it. The story will begin something like this:
"A Tiki author walks into a cocktail bar..."

Excellent post,Sven!
Amazed at all the wonderful treats in your hometown!
that Maori meeting house is incredible
as well as those shots of the rooms filled to the brim with primitive artifacts
AND a taxidermy room!!!!
Thank you for taking us along on your travels!

Ken, I was thinking so much about you while visiting Rauru this time, how you would FREAK OUT at the sight of these intricate carvings!
I gotta post some peeks for you, even though I still want to make one big comprehensive post about this amazing, one-of-a-kind Gesamtkunstwerk. Here is a sampling, with no comments:

Wow. That is an incredible amount of intricate detail work. GROG wish GROG could see that in person.

Indeed. Tene Waitere's tatoo detailing alone is amazing:





The level of carving skill displayed in Raruru seems almost too baroque, even overloaded, not primitive enough for Tiki. But it IS part of Tiki's story . The history of Raruru is a mirror of the meeting of the Western with the tribal culture.

Great photos of legendary bars in Hamburg.
If you are in Hamburg again visit our Bar near the old fishmarket and have a look if you like it...

Great shots. Lived in Germany for a year, but the only part of Hamburg I saw was the area around the Hauptbahnhof.

On the priority list.
