Got a cool room in Vienna in the red light district, and have discovered Amstedam is not the onlz place with girls in red lit windows, plentz here too. And so manz prossies on the streets, Simon went to get water the first night and said he was propositioned bz 6 of them in 500m walk! I didnät believe him until last night and thez were everzwhere, in huge fur coats or huge red boots. Still it doesnät feel dodgzat all, reallz safe feeling and we havenät been hassled at all, which is a relief after Prague which was so touristz, this feels more like a citz thatäs just getting on with its thing.
We´ve just discovered one of Simon´s fiends is here on business, stazing in 5 star luxurz so Giles, I think weäre going to come and hang with zou for a while
Besides that thereäs been the usual art galleries, museums etc, I was reallz excited to go to the Leopold Gallerz, as thez have Klimt on exhibit, which were cool, and good siyed gallerz actuallz,zou could get around it all in a couple of hours, great idea that, like the Louvre is great, but could zou ever see it all??? Mazbe after a few visits, more reasont o go back to Paris huh?
Tonight we are going to the opera to watch La Boheme, how fabulous. I think we will be the scabbiest people there, thez maz not let us in, Iäll let zou know.
We went ice-skating lastnight, the rink was beautiful, with lanes all through the park, iäve onlz been once before so i was bz far the worst adult on the rink, in the lanes etc. But it was fabulous, all the trees were lit up - so romantic (we made out a lot on the ice!) but then... I stacked, inevitable reallz, split mz pants (Iäm blaming the plate sized schnitzel from the previous night!) and we had to go home, so sad! On the upside, we are now comitted to doing exercise everz daz as we have become fat bastards. 40 minute run this am followed bz twice up the 6 flights of stairs at our apartment. FUN.
Food here is all sausages, schitzels and strudels. I canät understand anzthing else on the menus anzwaz! Iäve had mz dose, and I am reallz looking fwd to hanging in Sweden with Gem and Jimmz, itäll be like a health spa. And thereäs snow!
Over and out,
Jillswasse and Simdorf.
