Hamburg ... street names
One other particular that caught my eye was... the street names. I thought that they didn't sound German. At all. Strange names for streets. I speak and understand German but these street names remained mysterious to me. I kept thinking: Who gave this names? What history is behind this name? What is their meaning? Fascinating... Judge for yourself. Maybe it was just my imagination running wild... but what the hell is "Stubbenhuk"??????
Have you ever heard of a place called "Husum"?? This sounds Turkish to me (and I mean it literally)...
