Friday, August 28 continued

We reach Vienna in the evening and go to a musical performance at the Kursalon. We realize we have been here before, perhaps twenty years ago, in this same music hall. Tom believes it was his birthday then, as it is today.

We sit on gilded chairs with red seat cushions and hear a 13 piece orchestra play Strauss and Mozart.

There are dancers.

There are operatic singers, singing solo and duets.
