Falling in love - as a grownup - with a city I knew as a child [View all]

Oh My God
Vienna is a city of my childhood. I lived here with my grandparents for a year from age 10 to 11. And there is a memory of beauty and grandeur, but now, half a century later, I realize itís a city so wondrously beautiful that all I can keep doing is clap my lower chip back up to meet the upper. Sometimes it takes my hand to do it.

These are a few images from today. I have so many - from so many days - in so many places. As I have already said Iím re-connecting with family in Serbia, Germany and Austria. Traveling by plane, train, bus and automobile. The cost of transportation is so low I grip my forehead, and the reliability and ease of it all makes me want to spell ďinfra structureĒ for the orange baboon. For instance, my brother, who has 3 children, a job of substance and goes all over Germany has no car.
He has a (company paid) card that costs 4000 Euros. He can go with it on any plane, train, streetcar, city bus, rent cars on street corners, reductions to entry fees of many kinds, and feels like he is ready to roll at any time. He also has a bike, and a bike with motor. Itís a completely different way of considering transportation.

I digress, apologies.

The photos are random. Just a taste.

this is the falling in love with Vienna shot

random gorgeousness shot

photo of the Lipizzaner horses, hard to get, am proud of it

a random photo going down a major street, I got carried away enjoying how reflections in windows allowed me to take in so much more

and a basic fountain sculpture offered around many corners in many ways. I kept saying: will this just keep on ?

Lastly a photo I hope makes you smile as well. Happy monks as tourists in Vienna

Iím thinking that maybe over the next weeks after I get back I post some photos per week - since I have so many, and was lucky to take this trip. I hope I wonít make you tired of them.

Thanks for looking.
