This will be the last blog post for this trip. We fly home tomorrow, and today is a shopping and sightseeing day.
We spent yesterday morning at the splendid Heeresgeschichtemuseum at the Arsenal here in Vienna. I saw a lot, and took a lot of pictures, which I shall have to sort out when I get home. The rest of the day was spent walking around the city - we estimate we walked around 12 miles altogether, which should cancel out a few beers.
I was particularly impressed by the collection of vehicles - not a subject I know much about, but they looked good to me. Some of the following date from the post-war army of occupation. Here's just a selection of photos:
|The vehicle in which Archduke Franz Ferdinand had an especially bad day in Sarajevo|
|But is it art? We are not sure what it is, but it's interesting|
|Carl Hilpert's in Schulerstrasse - one of the great toy and model shops. Specialist in model railways|
|Oh well - all right then... supper at Joma|
