Greetings from beautiful Vienna!
This picture is from Vienna. The woman I'm dancing with was kind of in her own world at this outdoor concert I went to my first night here. Everybody was giggling at her, for good reason I guess....she was pretty amusing. But she didn't care. So after a few minutes of this I went and joined her, and let loose...that's right, the "Thriller" and the "Worm" to name a few of my "go-to" dance moves. :) Then others started joining, and after the song was over and we had exchanged bows, she stopped for a breather, and people started asking her for her autograph. Good times. I was glad my joining could help change her status from wierdo to "cool novelty." Tom (from Slovokia, studying in Vienna) took the picture. He came up to me and asked me a question about the concert earlier (in German), and after a couple of hours we had talked about everthing from communism (memories of it still very near for his family) to religion/spirituality to Beyonce (not sure how we got to her). And he gave me a carton of green tea (never drank the pre-mixed version...that stuff is good!). Neat to be able to make some early connections.
Having a blast. This is one of many things I could share from my LONG plane ride to my wanderings around to beautiful Vienna the last couple of days. But I'll save that for a rainy day.
