Guten Tag!

I'm actually on my way to bed, but I wanted to post a quick note to let everyone know that I made it to Vienna safely & I'm having a wonderful time! I'm typing on Missy's laptop right now and everything is in German which is making things a bit difficult for me but that's all right. I'm visiting my friend Missy & her husband Kai. He is a pastor here in Vienna and they have an intern right now whose name is Ludwig. Today the four of us hopped on a train and went to Durnstein, a small town east of here. We had a picnic by the Danube, took a bazillion pics and ate grapes right off the vine from the vineyards that were all around. Tomorrow the boys are back to work and Missy and I are going to explore the city. My German is hopeless, but I do have some new vocab to share with those of you I will see when I return home. Some of the new words come complete with sign language complements of Ludwig.
Gute Nacht (which I have learned has to be said with the right amount of throat scraping or you don't say 'good night', you say 'good naked' - oops!)
