Weekly Report No 82, CW 21

From Monday, 20.05.2002 to Sunday, 26.05.2002

Tomoorow, Monday 27th May, it finally happens: The long waited for Pro 7 report will be broadcasted which means: from 19:30 hrs on it is TV time ;-)
And a hint from me: Pro 7 has a raffle with hot prizes on their website, so have look at www.pro-sieben.de; it's worth it!
But also the layout is humming in section 2; just see for yourself...

doesn't really convince and needs some attention.


One of the containers at the construction site

Hmmm, containers: In more than 20 of them architects, supervisors, workers, and countless sub-contractors found a new "home".


The open air bath in Hamburg

Adventure, recreation, leisure - the open air bath offers plenty of each of these items.


Transformers to illuminate Hamburg

Pure power! These transformers (3*200 Watts each) including their rectifiers deliver the power for the lights. The complete town will need 15-20 of them...
