Saturday in Austria

Just ran about 20 intervals around VIenna. Was only going to go for 20 minutes and ended up doing

Time to go to a cafe now for a couple of hours before I leave for Copenhagen tonight.

It's a little strange here though, because nothing opens until 8am. No grocery stores, no cafes, not
even McDonalds (I wanted to check out their snazzy looking McCafe there).

As for last night, well, we did the obvious.

When in Vienna, go out for sushi, right? We went to Unkai, had sashimi. It was good...a little different
from North America - the salmon and shrimp weren't as good as usual but the tuna and whitefish

Hi Craig,

I have to admit I haven't checked your blog in a while (shame on me!), so I didn't know you're in Europe.
Hope you enjoy your time there. I miss Germany a lot - only in the summer time though ;O)

Have fun!
