At the hostel, Kenny chatted up some Swiss girls (Daniela and Caddy), who were really cool and obviously intelligent as they decided to hang out with us the rest of the evening
! We went to an underground jazz bar, chilled out, learned that Daniela is the Swiss womens foosball champion (well, not really, but she should/could be), watched Kenny eat a cheesy sausage off the street, and walked in the bitter cold back to our hostel...Austria is easily the coldest country I've been in this trip!
In the 4 bed dorm room, I was on the top bunk and Tyler was underneath...I woke up in the middle of the night because of someones snoring and just assumed it was Tyler, so I literally beat on him with my pillow from up high! I hear Tyler wake up, but I can still hear the snoring...whoops...I attacked Tyler with my pillow for no reason! haha I told him the next morning and he explained how he woke up, bewildered and confused, but not really knowing what happened! Sorry Tyler!
Tyler, Will, and I took off for some sightseeing...Vienna is like this architectural time machine being that I contains so many different buildings from so many different eras and styles of architecture. So, we saw the Greek Revival style Parliament, the Neo-Gothic Rathaus, the 19th century Burg Theatre, and then the stunning Museumsquartier, a beautiful little block of museums with such grand facades that one could spend hours just noticing the details of the buildings, irregardless of the amazing works of arts contained within. Will took off and Tyler and I went into the Kunsthistorisches Museum, which is said to house one of Europes leading art collections. Its a beautiful museum with some fantastic works and Tyler and I spent a few hours wandering about until we decided to head back to the hostel.
