movie- a great thriller from 1948ish. If you haven't seen it, like old Orson
Welles(actor) and post war- or going to Vienna- watch it.
We went to ride the famous ferris wheel in Prater Park-home of first amusement
park. Nice views of the city-lots of rides. Couldn't resist the bumper cars-
these cars are the best-fast and controllable-really smack into each other. We
had some killer 10 year olds around us and of course- I kicked Lincoln's ass- he
We sat in a bier garten and called it an evening.
Next morning, I went to the Treasury to view royal jewelry and ceremonial robes,
crowns ect. Amazing works of art. Jeweled gloves, christening gowns-blankets and
pillows- such wealth- can't imagine the time it took to get a king ready for
different ceremonies. All different time periods and the preservation of
tradition-with added bling. All the details-very talented artists creating
detailed items for royalty.
Lincoln went to the art museum. We than headed to Schonnbrun- summer royal
palace-20 minutes out of the city. We walked the beautiful gardens. I wonder
what the kings-queens would say today- all the 'common people' roaming
around-invading their world.
We returned to the city and resumed movie tour- sewers(awful smell),
hotels(Sacher for chocolate torte), Mozart cafe, apartments ect. Had some street
We headed to Budapest-ready to tackle another city, currency and language.
