Vienna....AKA Wien
It is very confusing in this part of Europe because locals refer to their cities as different names and when I am travelling by rail I have to double check to make sure I am going to the right place!
I really wish I knew more Germann here in Austria.  I think Germann would be the most usefull language here in Europe aside from English because most people do not speak a word of English so my international sign language is getting very excellent.
I spent the day visiting city center...more palaces, more cathedrials.  I never realized how many amazing people came from Austria....Mozart, Hayden, Strauss, and FREUD!  I went to visit the place where Freud lived most his life and carried out his works and it was interesting to be in the same place where he created his unique theories.  I even saw the couch he used for psychoanalysis and the very jar of cocain he used.  They even had his favorite flask that he brought along for his Sundaz walks when he got thirsty.  The palace had a beautiful rose garden with beautiful scents and colors of roses I did not think were possible.
That evening, I went to the opera house and saw a Germann opera called Der Vetter Aus Dingur.  I think I know what it was about...but I will have to compare with the actual plot when I have time.  The music was really nice and the symphony was even better.  It was all in Germann so the only words I understood were Yes, I love you and thank you in Germann but it was a great experience.
I also found out I got accepted into my Masters of Psychology at Yorkville University so I am very excited about that too! 
Love you, Miss You!

Ah.....Vienna
Hello and Big Hugs,

Congratulations on your acceptance sweetie, I am so happy for you!

From your description of the flowers, I can almost smell the fragrance. They sound breathtaking!

The opera sounds lovely and it must be exciting to be immersed in the culture.

Keep on having fun frolicing in the flowers.

Take care and Love Always,
Mom
