Last time I was in Vienna was in September of 2000 ~ ten years ago. I just landed from my second trip there. I love Vienna. If you ever hear me say, "I don't care about Europe," know that remark does not apply to Vienna.

Leopold Museum

The weather was perfect.

"Life and Death," Gustav Klimt

"Levitation," Egon Schiele

Concert posters for the Filmore East by Wes Wilson, 1967

Fabulous Art Nouveau furniture

"The Hope," by Otto Rudolf Schatz. Who are these people? How do they know each other?

Everything in Vienna has a texture.

I think a city is so civilized if I see streetcar cables.


Stop for little cheese sandwiches and coffee.

This guy wears mean shoes.

Streetcar cables.

Lots of loiterers at the Sigmund Freud Park

Awesome thing about Europe

St. Stephen's Dome

Inside St. Stephen's Cathedral

Yeah, at some point you find yourself taking a picture of the streets and buildings because they are so ornate and just THERE. And museum after museum! Did you do Schonbrun, or is that too touristy?

Hahaha - I got such a charge out of the crazy proliferating excess! Every surface that could be was covered with gold scroll.
