Vienna was beautiful. Phuong and I saw Stephansdom, the Rathaus and the Votivkirche. Stephansdom was very elaborate, very beautiful, with artwork and statues from different periods, including some from the 13th century!
We also went to the Sächer hotel to try the *famous* (at least in Vienna!) Sächertorte, which is a very light, fruity chocolate cake. I bought a small one to take home to my parents!
Yes, taking the train through the country, everything did look quaint and perfect. In the city, it´s still a *city* experience, but it´s fun just the same!

A beautiful disply of candles just inside the church. Oddly, they charged for the candles, haha. We didn't buy one.

Phuong manages to take a beautifully detailed picture (in spite of the fact we can't use flash photography).

Here I am climbing down the stairs after seeing the top of the Stephansdom.

Here's another Gothic-style church we saw in Vienna.

Here we are at the city hall in Vienna.

By the city hall, there's a small gardens/park area. It's beautiful, and I think how much my mom would love to see these flowers.
