Pentecost Monday is, almost incredibly to us Americans, a holy day of obligation and a national holiday here in Austria. Lisa and I spent the evening in Vienna in celebration of our fifth anniversary, which was actually last Thursday, but I had one exam that evening and another the next morning. We were hoping to hear part of a Mozart concert in the Musikverein, but discovered that standing room tickets for this particular performance were unavailable.

(maybe another time)
So the evening consisted of a great English style dinner at 1516, a walk through the city center (the weather was beautiful), and gelato from Zanoni and Zanoni.
