The real reason why my daughter waved at me with such enthusiasm:
Ex-President Bill Clinton was chatting on the balcony
of Schönnbrunn Palace, right above our meeting place.
A view steps down from their boss,
these gentlemen kept a watchful eye on the music lovers,
who happened upon the scene. ;-)
The cry to "Never hide" your Ray-Bans
was faithfully followed.
A rare treat:
Walking through the main entrance
to the palace's "backyard"
(with the Gloriette **, in the background).
A look back at Schönbrunn Palace.
When the Viennese go out to listen to an outdoors concert,
they turn even Palace gardens into a Ballpark,
but only until the moment the conductor raises the baton.
This vendor's tray is loaded with
Swedish B..bs (click here ** for the rest of the letters),
a confection that tastes like very soft marshmellows,
dunked in chocolate, some rolled in coconut flakes.
The concert stage
Ex-President Bill Clinton, getting ready
to receive a one-million-dollar check
from Gery Kessler, organizer of the Life Ball,
a Viennese event created to raise money to fight AIDS.
