Two trips to Vienna (one solo in Sept and one with Bob in Oct). The train ride is 6 hours each way via Budapest.
When I visited Vienna alone I hit the last weekend of summer weather. I was able to sit outside with my plum cake and grosser brauner at Cafe Sperl. I also tried the plum cake at the historic Cafe Hawelka. Better at Sperl.
When it rained on the next visit, Bob and I and everybody else in Vienna had the same idea: to go to Cafe Demel
The nut cake is almost gone but the cup in my hand contained hot chocolate with Bailey's and schlagobers
one of the best words in the German language. I'm trying really hard not to blink at the flash.
BUT the best dessert was at the Albertiner Keller:
Poppyseed-honey mousse with sour cherries. In a little glass preserves container. What??? You can see in the top left corner what was left of Bob's sachertorte.
More later on art and buildings!
Welcome to my blog!
Welcome to Poetry Is Cool Part Trois! I am currently writing about poetry, inter-disciplinary and collaborative projects, art, books, food and running from Ellensburg, WA--the next phase of my blogging experiment. This blog began when I was writing a poem a day during National Poetry Month in 2010. Some days you will find new photos and posts, sometimes a new link that interests me, sometimes there will be a new "French" sentence---I have a new goal of blogging at least once per week. I am always interested to hear from you. Say hello!
