View of the Graben from St. Peter's church
Looking for the 'Wise Men from the East' today, I encountered them at various places in the First District, for the first time at the crèche in St. Peter's Church, a short walk, through Graben and Jungferngasse, from St. Stephen's cathedral.
How do you stand living around so many beautiful things:))))ReplyDelete
I love the camel in the shop in the picture below!!
(and your book too. My kids liked the Polar Express.
Beautiful images! I love Vienna and my husband has always wanted to live there.ReplyDelete
Lovely creche, lovely light. Makes you want to meditate...ReplyDelete
How can I stand it? Taking big breaths and taking it in, one tiny dose after tiny dose after ... ;-)))
"Polar Express" somehow couldn't find a place in my children's heart. They rather ran with the "Wild Things".
I must confess I really didn't know Vienna well before I moved here, now I'm slowly falling in love with the city.
It's a truly beautiful church. Two large evergreen Christmas trees grace the altar, quietly festive (I couldn't bring myself to take a picture, with people praying and singing).
My oldest son was a big "Wild Things" fan too! He got the book for his youngest brother's little boy, that is how much he thought of it... I think the all round favorite of all my kids was "Who's mouse are you"? All three can still recite it from memory.ReplyDelete
I still think Amahl's illos are awesome!
