Wow... so far an amazing day. I had been to Vienna before but I had never seen it like we saw it in the Viking River trip. We really saw the entire city - and impressive it is.

This afternoon we spent at Schonbrunn Palace - home of the Hapsburgs. These people practically ruled the civilized world for several centuries. It is as impressive as Versailles. Between Budapest and Vienna - there is an incredible amount of history on this voyage. More than most Americans even begin to understand, I am afraid.

Tonight we go to a concert Mozart and Strauss (the Waltz king) - two of the greatest composers ever. If you saw Amadeus you know Vienna is the home of the classical music -- Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss... all lived here.

A very exciting day!!
