During the recent NYC days of rain and snow, I remembered my trip to Vienna. Essentially, the trip remains in my mind a fantasy of marvelous architecture, magnificent art, beauty and wonder. I went to Vienna in November a few years ago. The city is a paradise of sights and delights to please the senses, but the weather was cold and damp. Snow and rain. But such minor interferences cannot be taken seriously when there is so much to do and to see in the cultural wonderland that is Wien. Snow flakes frosted fancifully wrought arches and ornamented domes. Rain misted enormous mullioned windows and huge wooden doors. When my NY weather sometimes chills me to the bone, in my mind I visit Vienna where weather furthered charm.
