It's one of those sprawling estates with about 80 gardens and statues and fountains and fake ruins for people in petticoats to wander about in, and we followed their lead, shuffling fall leaves over the green grass with our feet and chatting.
I think/hope this little Austrian was getting ready for Halloween.
Note the parallels
BE the statue!
I think this is called the Orangerie
On our way out some hours later we ran into a wedding of some kind with what's the most pathetic bridal party car I've EVER seen.
Followed by another tour of the city, this time from someone who KNEW and not from his Norwegian-language guidebook, and then back home. That night I got a glimpse of Vienna's nightlife, which reminded me quite a bit of Houston's style, just sans the more indie brewery style/coffee places. A really cool evening.
