Oh Vienna!

In the absence of anything exciting in the knitting line to show you, I thought I'd give you the view from our hotel in Vienna.

We looked out over the Stadtpark. The Kursalon (where we went to the Strauss and Mozart concert) is out of shot on the right hand side.

I've tried to highlight a couple of things in this picture, but the type has come out too small to read, although you can probably at least see the arrows. The one on the left is showing some mistletoe growing on the high tree tops and the one on the right is showing the golden statue of Johann Strauss, which features on every second Vienna postcard (alternating with that big wheel thing which we didn't see). I've given you a close up version of Strauss below, the far off one is just to give some perspective on where we were staying.
