day 2 – Vienna

Decorative lights go up for the holidays and remain until Lent.

Decorative lights downtown go up for the holidays and remain until Lent.

After a marathon 20+ hours of travel, we finally deplane in Vienna, land of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Brukner, Mahler, Schoenberg, and espionage intrigue between the CIA, MI-6, and the former Soviet Bloc KGB during the Cold War.

We are nine hours ahead in this time zone; the temperature is a brisk 27 degrees Fahrenheit under a solid overcast with a low of 20 forecast for tonight. The forecast for tomorrow is a high of 26 and a low of 14! Our California blood is thin!

A quick check in at our hotel and then it’s off to dinner…
