Wendy's Whimsical Wonderings on the Tenacious Trials and Travels of the Luminous and Luxurious Lutes

First of all, I'd like to begin this blog by saying, Austrians know how to do food the right way. In our adventures so far I've had an assortment of coffees, cakes, soups and breads that have all been.positively delectable. Last night we went to a dinner concert at St. Peter's abbey which was very enjoyable. There were two highly engaging performers, a soprano and a baritone, performing a series of Arias from Mozart's works. They started off with some selections from Don Giovanni, and I was quite entertained when the baritone went from portraying the character of Masetto directly to singing that of Don Giovanni. They finished their set with some pieces from The Magic Flute, and after singing them in English all semester it was exciting to hear the original German text. Anyways, tonight we see Swan Lake done by the Russian State Ballet, which should be incredibly intriguing. Auf wiedersehen!
