Kel, Paula, Kate were off to the House of Music. Buds had Bets and Yessa off on an electric scooter adventure.
Monkey was out shopping and Buster and I headed out to the KunstHistorches Museum.
When Buddie studied here in Vienna, he was saving every schilling for a post-study abroad European trip with his then-girlfriend. One of the few extravagances he allowed himself was a membership to this museum. He would come here with his sketchbook and wander the galleries. I love to think of him then, wishing I had known him.
Even without the spectre of Buddie-past, I would still love these marbled stairs and soaring, masterpiece covered walls and ceilings. The paintings here tend to run “dark,” which is not my preferred.
I mean literally dark, not thematically dark.
But there is an Egyptian area here that I adore.
We saw several paintings that appear in Animal Crossing which makes us smile.
Buster found out he’s a Medusa fan.
It was such a treat to walk around and chat and discover with Buster. I loved it.
That night we regathered for dinner out close to our apartment.
Then Buds and I popped over for a late night visit to hear about Monkey’s day.
Tomorrow we head out for Salzburg while Monkey begins her truly solo adventure.
Two cities down.
