So this morning, a few of us decided to take a tour bus around the city. Definitely worth 14 Euro. I got a good feel for the center of the city and lots of good photo ops. As expected, the tour bus took us to lots of "touristy" locations. Beware lots of pictures.
Children in neon vests. Mama, I'm surprised you didn't make us wear these when we were younger!
Prater Amusement Park:
We aren't in Alabama anymore:
Stephansdom (aka St. Stephen's Cathedral):
The U-Bahn stop we get off at to go to class.
The opera house. Right across from the Institute.
For lunch, we went to the famous Cafe Central. A little pricy but beautiful.
Yes, this is the cafe. (I had salad with Pesto Vinaigrette dressing. Brilliant.)
The last 3 photos are inside the opera house. It was only 3 Euro for standing room only to go to the opera, and we got in tonight! We only stayed for an hour (our group wasn't too into operas and standing got uncomfortable), but the singers were wonderful. "Lucia Di Lammermoor" was showing. Basically like Romeo and Juliet.
Don't expect any more blogs 'till Monday. Headed to Venice this weekend!
