Arrival in Vienna ( Wein), Austria

Vienna is huge. I have been studying my guide book and map and the internet like I am trying to past the bar exam. There is so much to see here – my guide book never even scratched the surface. This is the 2nd time Rick has failed me this trip. ( The 1st time was one of the hotels he recommended I thought was a dump and checked out ). He will be hearing from me.

 

My 2nd impression – Vienna is beautiful. I will be up early and ready ( I hope) to see the sights.
My only outing this afternoon after arriving was to see a building designed by an artist with some wild ideas. Google his name, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, for some entertaining looks at his other buildings. He died some years ago, so these buildings are the end of his era. And wish me luck tomorrow!!  Oh, by the way, Vienna is also the city of tortes – in very window……my jeans are getting tighter already.
