At last – Schnee!

At last - Schnee!

Although friends and family in the U.S. had had more than enough of the white stuff by end of January, we never had snow at all in Vienna – until my very last night in town! Just the lightest, sparkling dusting of snow came down like a kiss on my tongue and a benediction on the city streets. While I am well aware that snow and ice can be a real difficulty for many people (and ironically, Atlanta got walloped just after I returned home), I will still savor this moment of catching snowflakes and saying farewell and “Alles Gute!” to this glittering, shadowed, complex and beautiful city of Vienna that I have truly come to love!
