Greetings from Vienna, where I have an unobstructed view of the Belvedere from my hotel room! I arrived here this afternoon, and already I've done a few of my favorite Wienerthings: had a falafel sandwich from a street vendor; spent time with dear friends "E" and "B"; consumed not one but two Schwarzenberg cappucinos from my favorite coffee house; and enjoyed a fine schnitzel dinner from one of my favorite restaurants. I'm delighted to be here, even if it will be a short visit! :-)
I have to get up early tomorrow so this is shorter than usual. I'll write more and give a "Vienna update" when I get back to Belgium tomorrow night. Tchuss!
