  1. On Thursday, May 23 2008,
    at 2:27:10 pm Pacific Time,
    the 50,000th visitor arrived here
    from Bellevue, Washington!

    I would like to thank each and every visitor who came through here, and especially those who encouraged me with their comments and emails to continue sharing my new hometown with all of you!

    Exploring and experiencing Vienna day by day has been an incredibly rewarding and beautiful journey so far. I feel very priviledged not only for being welcomed with open arms by this city and its wonderful inhabitants, but also by the sheer joy in being able to share it with all of you, my dear friends, starting with you from back in my old hometown of Washington, DC (my desire to share my new hometown with you was the original reason for starting this blog!), and continuing with all of you, from all over the world, who have visited here, and those who also are sharing their world with me.

  2. No, no, no - thank YOU!!
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful city with us and showing it through such wonderful photos and eclectic text.
    oh yeah - and you're rool noice person to top it off!

    50,000 visitors????

You keep putting up your enchanting photos, poetry, and comments and I'll keep visiting.

    Du bist die beste Botschafterin für diese Stadt, darauf können wir stolz sein. So viele schöne Momente haben selbst mir, die hier aufgewachsen ist, die Stadt von einer ganz besonderen Seite gezeigt, die ich wohl kenne, mir aber nicht so schön vorkommt.
    Danke und mach weiter so!

  18. And here I was happy when my daily visitors topped 10 a day! Eek. I agree with what all have said - that we should be thanking you for all of these wonderful photos! You are one creative gal.
