Vienna and Wolfgang Amadeus

The last place we went on the Europe was Vienna, and one of the cool things we got to do there was go see a Mozart concert at Schoenbrunn palace, the "summer residence" of the Habsburgs. A massive lemon cream colored palace...they call it the Versailles of the east. And it's pictured here. The other photo is of the Orangerie - the concert hall where we saw an orchestra, opera singers and dancers perform some of Mozart's "greatest hits" if you will. Funny Prague Drapo and I were walking around and passed some kind of concert hall and they had a sign for that night's performance saying "Mozart's greatest hits" and we just thought it was hilarious - like the way you see Aerosmith's Greatest Hits 1985-1995 in the store. Anyway, dinner at this palace and then the concert was awesome...a very cool thing to have done while we were in prim and perfect Austria.
