A Rain Day in Wein

My friend Fotis just returned from several days in Vienna and spent most of the time - when he wasn't in the Opera House - huddled under an umbrella. We were hoping that the weather would have improved when we arrived. Unfortunately it was still rain, rain and more rain with no sun in the forecast! We head over to Salzburg this morning and to more of the same. And the forecast doesn't hold promise for the next few days. I blame it all on Iceland!

But even in the rain Vienna has its charms and shop windows with displays of ...



Killer cupcakes and cookies ...


Killer cakes and pastries ...


Killer shoes - for the fashion setters ...



Killer shirt and tie combinations ...

Sounds like such fun! Rain or no rain!

Sounds like you're having a fine time! Loved the shopping opportunities. You need to post a picture of yourselves in your new Austrian finery.

I'm blaming everything bad, including my bad housekeeping, on the volcano. Thank goodness that volcano hasn't ruined pastries, clothes, and music!

Umm - here, much closer to Eyjafjallajokul or however you spell it, we've got the most glorious no-cloud-in-the-sky early summer weather. Italians at an engagement party out in deepest Bucks we attended yesterday were delirious with the joys of the English weather.

But sorry for you. Are you drowning your sorrows in der Wein or, are you really in Wien??
