I forgot how impressive the Kunsthistorisches Museum is.

I forgot how Vienna is able to put together the very old with the very modern.

I forgot how clean the streets are.

I forgot how gorgeous the art galleries are and how amazing the antiques shops are.

View from my breakfast spot.
I forgot when you say good-bye to a well-mannered Austrian he bows forward.

Saying good-bye to friends yesterday evening.
 I was told that Maria Callas and Pablo Picasso both walked
through this entrance in Vienna's 13th district.
Upstairs lived a famous Austrian photographer
and both artists were photographed in his apartment!
I forgot that when you order coffee it comes on a little silver tray with a glass of water and a treat.

I forgot because I lived here over 30 years ago.
