I'm going to miss the security of knowing we have inernet -- you never can tell which place has wifi and which doesn't! Well, I mean, you could ask... but sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures.
Yesterday we went to see Mozart's old place, and today we went to Hohensalzburg castle and the Salzburg gardens. We also went to see some of the chapels in the area, and on a hot day like it was today, it was quite literally a sanctuary. Thank you St. Peter's church! You see, it was surprisingly cold inside the church we went to, and thus it was very refreshing not to be pelted by the hot sun. We passed on the catabombs of Austria, possibly in favor of the catacombs of Paris.
We went to Salzburg Gardens and at this point the heat was really getting to us and I lamented not being able to go inside the church again, where it was nice and cool. We met a nice Austrian woman at the gardens named Marianetta Steinburger, and she was a very kind person who had a decent outlook on life. She was almost 90 years old but didn't look it, and kept saying how everyone has their own story to tell. She was very impressed that KP and I had gone to Japan and travelled so much while so young. We had dinner at the Mozart Cafe and probably burned more calories than we ate. Later, for dessert, we bought and ate fresh cherries and strawberries from the marketplace!
