I took a long, and lovely train ride to Vienna from Germany that lasted about 5 hours.
The train route was absolutely beautiful, and we passed Salzburg, St something, among many other stations. Vienna is an absolutely clean and beautiful city with many gartens (gardens), and perhaps many of the finest cafes of Europa.
The people are willing to help at least near the central station (Westbanhof). In the central area of Vienna, there were times I came across people who would stare at me for a very long time. I found it strange, and scary. By the by the central area of Vienna is huge. I guess its some sort of a cultural thing. I am just a human in becoming (beingness) even while I being a complete illusion wholly on to… (here comes the paradox in words) myself.
I tried out the 3rd man breakfast at Cafe Mozart, and don’t recommend
it unless you are going to have meat. I do recommend trying out their desserts from their main menu. It’s the white one with “Mozart” in golden letters. They have 2 other menus as well. I passed by Sacher Hotel, with the Cafe Sacher right next to it. I am avoiding sugar, and with my belly full of one dessert from Cafe Mozart, I had no room or the lack of discipline to go get the original Sacher from Cafe Sacher. I also checked out Cafe Central, and didn’t have enough time to have dinner on my last night out. I checked out one of their malls, and it was just super as they say. Please check out their mall. I haven’t seen anything so cool, clean, and brilliantly designed in the North-East of the USA. Haven’t really spent time in other areas of the US.
I opted out the concerts that so many were trying to sell to me. It’s much better for me to do part of Germany in Christmas, and also Vienna for the first week of New Years. This is when they have the ball, and also many arrangements of music are played live.
There are a good number of museums as well. If you are interested you could check out “The Kiss” by Klimt at the Belveder’s Musem, among other works. I had forgotten that I had seen much of Klimits works, mostly drawings, and a good number of paintings at an awesome exhibit in NewYork City at the Neue Museum on 86th Street. The New York Exhibition was missing one painting if my memory serves me right, and that was the “The Kiss”. Belveders is more than a museum, and it is I guess a must see. Must is a strong word, and it is being used as others use them, even if I don’t know who others are.
Almost at last, many of the Viennese women are gorgeous. And I really loved to watch the tanned ones, and also a good number of women who have emigrated here from the eastern regions of Vienna, Austria. Before I left I had some forbidden chocolate dessert, and hope to have another go about of Vienna during the New Years.
Lastly, I hope the photos below will serve of some purpose for you, and not just wasting bandwidth.
