Austrian quick takes

Here is the chapel in Gaming, Austria with its 'new' ceiling; the photo below shows the original Gothic ceiling. One just has to climb 144 stairs to see it! They are standing on the Baroque ceiling. I was based here in gaming for four years, yet I had never seen this well-known secret. Sometimes it is nice to be tourists in a familiar place.

sorry Mozart! I know the US dollar is weak, but we didn't change enough money into Euros! 
Party of 5 at the oldest public zoo in the world- We enjoyed sharing some schnitzel and dobos cake in this beautiful folly at the old center of the zoo.
