So, I’m Victor, female and middle aged. I’m an artist. My friend’s name is Yan. He is little older and works as a design engineer. We live in different parts of Germany, not married and independent. Each our meeting is a holiday. Our visit to Austria was planned long before. Christmas and Yan’s birthday are on the same day and we decided to make it special.
Well, the story begins in German city K. on December 25, 2011. We got up.
I’m waiting for my friend. We’ll leave soon.
We’re in the car on the way to the airport. It is situated in another city, say N, and our way will be long enough. During the trip we listen to audio books and music. That day we listened to poems by Brodsky read by Mikhail Kozakov. Marvelous!
After Brodsky we listened to Paganiny and I began to dance as if I heard Lady Gaga)
One of my presents to Yan.
Then we came to N. I think, the natives will recognize the underground station. Trains of N’s underground are driven automatically, there’re no human drivers there.
The airport, calm and Christmassy.
It’s great to watch the planes starting and by the way show one more present, armlet of one well known firm.
Yan likes it. He has a lot of my presents. We like to post them to each other.
We’re on the board and in 40 minutes we see Austria.
Our hotel called Prince Eugene.
It has 4 stars but the room is small, the bath is narrow. So, keep in mind.
We left our bags and went to see Vienna.
We came out of underground and saw them…
We forgot we’re hungry.
We took out our phones and began to send MMS to our relatives and friends to show them the beauty of the city.
In Europe Christmas is a family holiday and in the streets on December, 25 you can see only some tourists
and those who entertain them.
Christmas Vienna at night is beautiful: churches,
We were hungry and tired and couldn’t find a restaurant with traditional Vienna schnitzel.
To Yan’s health!
What did we eat? Chinese food, of course. Lately I’ve been interested in everything connected with China, especially in drawing.
Midnight is left behind.
We found famous ugendstyle stairs in the bathroom of that Chinese restaurant.
We continued our walk.
We came to the hotel in the morning, have a bath and have breakfast
and went to Belvedere to see pictures by Klimt.
They have unique works of Secession artists:
Giovanni Segantini, Koloman Moser, Egon Schiele and others.
Palace complex Belvedere is Prinz-Eugen-von-Savoyen summer residence (the hotel we stayed at is called in his honour). He was brave and liked arts. He was a Frenchman and a possible son of Louis XIV.
He released Austria from the Turks forever.
Some luky persons live there and run around Belvedere park.
We saw some more pictures
and at 4 pm we came to opera.
and listen to music.
It was “Le Nozze di Figaro” by Mozart.
I love opera very much but it’s rather difficult to listen to it for three hours.
In our loge. By the way the skirt you see I made myself.
We tried to be shot together but…
It’s me got high on the music.
Tomorrow we’ll visit other places but it’ll be another story…
Good night, Vienna!
Thanks for being with us.
