Wien

I decided to visit Vienna on the strength of it having more pages in my guide book than Geneva.
 
Vienna surpassed all my expectation: I stumbled upon some sort of outdoor wine festival, so not only saw people in lederhosen, and people playing the accordian, but also people in lederhosen dancing to accordian music.  They were doing the polka.
 
Everything had to be downhill after that high bar.  Checked out a bunch of museums, learning far more about modern Austrian art than at all necessary.  Caught up on the goings-on of the wacko Hapsburgs.  Ate strudel and schnitzel and Sachertorte (actually at the Hotel Sacher!).  Got to see Lippanzans training.
 
Seriously though.  Lederhosen.  Accordian.  Polka!
