We finished up the day in a Beer Garden eating Bratwurst and Kraut and drinking some of the local beer. They had a band that played Austrian folk music. There were some people there who were feeling no pain, but they were having a raucous good time. Classical music is hugh in Salzburg and you can attend a free concert virtually every day. We went to one, for a while, in one of those beautiful churches.
We are off to Munich tomorrow. Don't know about the internet there, but keep checking back. More beer gardens and the BMW museum.
The hillbillies on holiday say auf wiedersehen from Salzburg.

THIS IS GETREIDEGASSE STREET. IT IS THE OLD SHOPPING DISTRICT OF SALZBURG. MOST OF THE BUILDINGS DATE FROM THE 15TH CENTURY. THE STORY IS THAT MOST OF THE PEOPLE WERE ILLITERATE AND THE BUSINESSES HAD TO PUT A SIGN UP THAT SHOWED THE PEOPLE WHAT WAS SOLD IN THEIR STORE. LOTS OF PRETTY SIGNAGE. EVEN THE MC DONALDS HAD ONE OF THESE PRETTY SIGNS.
