Today, Dr. Powell, Sam, Elise and I attempted to do something "non-chic" and go to Hallein to see the salt mines. That didn't happen...as the salt mines were closed because it was snowing. It was nice to get away from the tourist-y Salzburg, though.
Overall, the town was much more sincere and quintessentially Austrian than the bustling Salzburg.
Of course, we spent a lot of time learning about Mozart...I guess I shouldn't say learning...since we all know so much about him already! It was fantastic to see the places he really lived, however. Seeing his favorite churches, and where his father lived and worked (and died). We saw so many of the famous portraits and drawings of Mozart and his family at the Mozart Museum in his birthhouse.
Sam, Marissa and I also took time to take our pictures with the big guy...(although this statue is famous for being an extremely inaccurate likeness of him)
