Sound of Music: When I last left you, I was heading out to the Sound of Music bus excursion. Smaltzy, but I loved it. 50 years ago, in 1965, the movie was made here in Salzburg (and indoor scenes inside in a Hollywood studio).

Then we went to the cathedral at DomPlatz. This was an
interesting midnight service experience. They lock the gates so that you have
