So not a super exciting day. Lots of class. Some sunshine. A little exploration. A gross, bread-heavy, pig-heavy meal and some vending machine beer.
After class, around 3 or so, I sprinted into town to enjoy the leftover daylight. I hiked around the old castle wall, I think, that took me pretty far down the Danube and up to the top of the hill. About half way down the trail, I took the stairs to Martinskirche, the oldest church in Austria (if you don’t count the renovations):
My batteries that I bought yesterday were pretty much dead, so I couldn’t take too many pictures and it died every hiking picture I tried to take. And today is the day after Pentecost so EVERYTHING is closed except for restaurants and bars, so I couldn’t buy any lithium batteries.
After hiking a few hours, I chilled to a Radler – beer mixed with lemonade. Quite refreshing. And a gross bacon-dumpling-thing that looked pretty but tasted gross. I couldn’t even eat half of it. But oh, well, maybe if I keep ordering gross things, I’ll lose weight! I ate/drank at the Fisherhaus or something like that, but it had an outdoor beer garden right next to the pretty yellow house I like so much (see previous posts).
I just balanced the old checkbook and showered. Ready to do some laundry and sip a vending machine beer. Maybe I can find some people to play cards with!
