Saturday morning we had glorious weather. I donned my Keen sandals, which are the most comfortable shoes I own, and we walked back to Vienna for some breakfast. On the way there, I took lots of photos of graffiti and signs.
Sex shop near our hotel…
I got a kick out of these signs. Bill says the dog picture instructs people to put dog crap in a bag.
Apparently, there is a band in Vienna called Catpiss.
Interesting place for beverages?
I took a picture of this ad for an insanely decadent spa… Who needs a TV in the jacuzzi?
We ended up at Cafe Museum, yet another delightful cafe, which had a lot of tempting looking desserts. Again, the waiters all wore tuxes.
A very nice breakfast for about 27 euros (for both of us). One of my Facebook friends declared European breakfasts better than American ones. Frankly, I kind of agree.
My hot chocolate was delicious!
After breakfast, we took a very long walk around Vienna. Originally, we were going to go to the Albertina art museum, but we were a little too early. So we headed back to the Rathaus and rose garden areas, where I took a whole lot of photos. There was some kind of race going on, so the Rathaus area was teeming with people and more than a few dogs.
Hawkers in period costumes were everywhere here, trying to snare people who don’t know they need to see a concert.
The JWs were also hawking their wares…
I took a photo of the 25 hour hotel with its provocative signage. Apparently, it’s a madhouse.
Runners rounding the bend…
Tulips in bloom!
And the finish line!
Vienna promises a rose garden…
We spent some time hanging out by this family of mallards… I also got video footage!
This sign discourages drinking the ducks’ water… seems to go without saying!
More scenes from the city.
I was fascinated by this marble statue of a man about to be bludgeoned…
By the riding school… so beautiful!
