Goodbye Salzburg, Hello Vienna! (Adventures in Austria Part 2)

I arrived yesterday in Vienna after an easy train ride from Werfen to Salzburg to Vienna. It was sad to say goodbye to the mountains, but the wonders of city await!


Claudia held the orientation yesterday afternoon, since the other Untourists who arrived yesterday were coming from Prague and so weren't jetlagged. There's so much to do here, that I think I'll need to set up an hour-by-hour schedule to make sure I do everything that I'd like to.

The Viennale began today. It's a big international film festival, and I think Jane Fonda is coming or is here as a guest of honor. Hopefully I'll be able to catch a film or two while I'm here.

Claudia was also able to get me and the other Untourists passes to a photography exhibition that just opened in the KunstHausWien (which houses a large collection of Hundertwasser's work). Lucien Clergue was honored last year as the first photographer to be inducted into the French Academy of Fine Arts, and I was very impressed (and had my horizons expanded) by the show of his work last night.

That's all for now, time to get out of this smoky internet cafe. Auf Wiederschauen!

I was also just in Vienna at the end of September and I had the best lunch in the Naschmarkt. I never saw such a great selection of restaurants and cafe's in one place, I could live there! I think it's also still 'Sturm' season, the fresh pressed grapejuice/wine that is sweet but has a light amount of alcohol. A definate autumn favorite. And don't miss ordering some 'Wild' at some restaurant as it's game season and you can get some wild boar or venison or even something more adventurous. Ok , enough about food!
