Dear Jess, thank you for your friendship!!! You are an Easter gift to me!! Years ago when I lived in Germany I traveled to Munich with my wife and our first born son, we had to make a decision to go to Vienna or go into the Swiss Alps, we chose Switzerland for we didn't have time for both and I have always wondered what I missed, because of my love for the music of Vienna. I envy you, how far must you travel to get to Vienna?
I will google Vienna and view some photos of what I missed of that great city. Please take care and enjoy a beautiful spring!!:))
Hi Jess!!! I forgot to mention about the Easter parade. I am not sure if there ever was an Easter parade in my town, but I think New York city has an Easter parade every spring. I remember it from the lyrics in a song which I enjoyed when I was younger. Maybe it came from Easter Sunday when people would dress in their best clothing and walk to church!!
I hope you are having great fun with spring in Austria, do you live near the mountains? Can you see the Alps from where you live? It must be very "schonen", where you live!!!
I love it when my friends tell something about where they live and how it is!!! We lived in London, Germany, and Holland, and I worked for the USAF doing electronic communications. Between 1966 to 1970, it was a great time to be young and living in Europe. I was very lucky to get such an opportunity and I learned as much as I could about the people, architecture, art, and music!!!
I love this site and the music of the Gregorian Masters!!;o))
Please take care, with love and Peace, your friend, Alan
