Vienna Day 2

While I was going to meetings, my wife was shopping and sightseeing in Vienna. (Have U-Bahn Pass, Will Travel). While shopping, she bought a purse for our niece and struck up a conversation with the shop owner. It turned out that he was a Houston native that had transplanted to Austria 10 years ago. He then asked her if she had attended any music events and she described the Vienna Residence Orchestra concert. He said he had tickets to a concert but couldn't make it so he gave my wife two tickets to a youth from China concert for Friday. So, if you are near the Stephansdom Cathedral, look for the shop named Papillon and give them some business.

In the evening we went to a cozy restaurant filled with Cuckoo clocks. Their special of the week featured chanterelle mushrooms along with your main course. It was a wonderful place.
