Touring Vienna and IAEA

Fantastic to see the performance at Vienna Opera. Busy days continue with much touring of the fine sights of a wonderful city. Overview audio-bus tour of the whole city yesterday following a half day in the Albertina Museum. Biggest collection of the works of Albrecht Durer I've ever seen in one place. Today, a half day at the Kunsthistoriche Museum with its amazing collections of paintings by Bruegel, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Velasquez and many, many more.

Today's highlight was an in-depth tour by my son, David, of his workplace, the International
Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of the United Nations. An amazing collection of exciting modern architecture plus the excitement of IAEA's General Conference of all member nations, which is happening this week.

Roxie, David, and Lori are off right now to another art museum at The Belvedere to view the paintings of Gustav Klimt. I'm sitting this one out to rest up for dinner at a highly recommended Austrian restaurant. Last night's feast at a wonderful Russian restaurant, complete with way too much vodka, will be hard to beat, but I'm willing to try....
