My feelings during this part of the trip are hard to explain well with words. I have spent the better part of my adult life studying the art, music and culture of western Europe. My ancestors are from England, but they likely came to the colonies in the early 18th century. I really have no link to this culture, apart from my love for it. During the whole tour, but especially during this performance, I felt that I had become a part of it, that I wasn't merely an observer any more, but that I was a participant in it. Like I said, it's hard to put into words, but a kind of synergy between my learning and my experience took place that was powerfully moving. I'll never forget it.
With that, our time in Baden and Austria was finished. We ate some lunch, said goodby to our new friends, and started the 5 hour bus ride to Prague.
