Banana Goes to Vienna:
Outside the Schönbrunn Palace/The Schönbrunn Palace's Park:
...Me, holding an iced coffee-- or as close to one I managed to have without preparing it myself. I'll mention ice, food and a few other things I consider "strange" (i.e., merely differences in cultures) later.
The castle is huge. It's certainly palatial with nearly 1500 rooms-- I think the room count only includes the actual Palace and not the entire complex. Not bad for a "summer residence". I took pictures, but... This was not/is not allowed in the Palace and I was eventually "caught". I must say that it is very difficult to act like you had no idea of such rules with a no-photography sign in every single room. I don't usually like tourist attractions and I loathe itineraries while on vacation. I've had so-called "vacations" with printed itineraries (requiring waking up at 5 AM) far too often. I would have liked to see the zoo and the gardens, but February is not a great time to see either.
I really just enjoyed being with "Seth", even if we were doing nothing or walking around. Time passed way too quickly.
Seth and I:
...Having dinner. Afterwards, a few perhaps spirited Austrians we were with decided to throw snowballs at each other... and at buildings. This resulted in an hour + search in the cold night for a lost/thrown golden ring.
Aww, we met in a cult:
Hmm... What's next? I wish I knew.
