Goodbye Salzburg. Hello Hallstatt,
We are off to Hallstatt this morning;
sitting here at the train station writing this e-mail right now;
listening to the recorded messages on the PA system in German. We have some time
to kill so I thought I would get in an update on how things are going over
here.Last night we went to see the Salzburg Red Bulls play, they won 3-0.
The match was great; the fans are so into their football over here. The
have a section for the visiting team’s fans and it is all caged in so no
fights can break out between their fans and the home team fans. Only bad part is
that EVERYONE smokes at the games, and when they are drinking they are
smoking like chimneys. I wore my RCB scarf (my local football support group) to
the game, got a bunch of looks from people trying to figure out what my
scarf was all about. After the game everyone was in high spirits chanting and
singing all the way to the train and on the train back to Salzburg. It
is a short ride from Salzburg to the stadium.
I spent yesterday walking the city of Salzburg taking in all the
sites; Colin is a little under the weather so he took a nap. Walked along the
river path, the water is so green and clean looking. I am sure it is VERY
cold! I got to see where Mozart was born, baptized and where he grew up. The
tourist crowds were not that bad at all this time around. Last year we were
here in June and the old town was much more crowded. Salzburg is such a great
city: I could so live over here!
Next stop is Hallstatt Austria. It is located in the Lake District of
Austria. We plan to stay there for three nights, and then move to
another one of the Lake District cities.
Until next time this is Judge saying; Salzburg, Salzburg, Red Bulls,
Red Bulls, Danke, Bitte!! (little chant from last nights game)
