Travels on the Danube

Safe and Secure in Vienna

Hey everyone!

So the whirlwind continues. I gotta say I am indeed safe and secure in Vienna. I'm at a cafe where I just had a wonderful sandwich with strong cheese, jelly, lettuce and onion. I am also on my third coffee since arriving in Vienna, not even because I'm tired, but rather they have amazing coffee here.

But to bring you up to speed, last night I was out with some people who were at my hostal with me. This was a bad idea seeing as I had to get up at 7 to catch the boat up the Danube, but I went out none the less. I met a fellow American who was in Iraq and on two months leave. Army Specialist Mark Schneider from Michigan. I bought that guy all his drinks for the night (he didn't have much, he hadn't drank in a year), but I mean he drives an army humvee around Baghdad. That guy's the man.

So it was up and out early this morning and onto the boat on the Danube. On the whole I was sort of disapointed in it. The mean age of everyone on that cruise probably hovered near 60. I slept for the beggining part (figuring I'd catch it on the ride back) and got a lot of good pics towards the end of the cruise.

Arriving in Berlin, I was in about as much trouble as I was in Hungary, but I was reassured because everything was well labeled, where I could get a map, where my hostal was, etc and I made it to the hostal without a problem.

Currently I am here at this cafe with a guy named Edin from Bosnia using the free wireless internet. Its pretty sweet. The plan for the night is pretty much to plan tomorrow, maybe meet some people at the hostal and go to sleep.

Miss you all very much

saludos
