This painting has so much meaning....
This afternoon I went to Belevedere and paid to see their collection. Worth every penny, so much more enjoyable art then in earlier museums, I thought. Today is a hot sunny day and the streets and museums were crowded with tourists. It felt like a weekend, and I am glad I am leaving Vienna for a few days. I am even more glad that I spent the afternoon looking at such lovely paintings. I will post my favourites, with info tiles for some of them.

After touring Belevedere, I went in search of St. Stephen cathedral in the centre of the city. I got lost two days ago trying to find it. For any travelers, take the wide pedestrian street in between the Bristol Hotel and the Opera house, it goes directly to the cathedral, passing hundreds of expensive shops.

This if funny. I asked a couple if they would snap my picture and the lady was a hoot, motioning to me to pose, she even imitated a model for me. They were from Ukraine, and told me that they were spending two days here, then moving to Munich. I told her Canada supported Ukraine and they were grateful.
