"Day 6 - Vienna. Got a break this morning because we got home so late from Budapest, our driver couldn't start out until 1 pm. So a shorter day of sightseeing. We went first to the cemetery where all the great Viennese composers are buried. Our young pianist Isaac brought Petoskey stones and placed them on the graves of Mozart's, Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms! Then on into the city to visit the Haus der Musik, an amazing interactive museum about all aspects of music and composers. From there folks were on their own. I had a Viennese Pancake, basically a crepe filled with apricot jam. Back on the bus for happy hour on the way back to Bratislava."
