Viennese coffee and cake

Vienna is known for its coffee shops, and with good reason! The coffee and cakes are wonderful, enjoyed in the splendour of comfortable leather armchairs. I could get quite comfortable with Viennese life.

I had coffee with whipped cream, enjoyed with a Mozart cake, which is layers of light and dark chocolate.

Table Bay

My last post was a pic of Table Mountain from Table Bay. Today’s pic is exactly the opposite – a pic of Table Bay from Table Mountain. Lion’s Head is the little peak on the left, and you can just make out Robben Island in the background.

Temple of Apollo, Delphi

This is where you went to ask the Oracle for advice. The the answers were ecstatic speech which where translated by the priests.

We got our own advice in a manner at the temple, when a dog walked up to us, started sniffing Lois?’ cane, and then gently grabbed onto it, as if to say that she needed a dog and not a cane. Then the dog wondered off.

This is just before we left to go back home and be with our dogs, and Lois is due for a new guide dog in a couple of months!

So maybe the ancients were onto something after all.
