Arrived safely in Austria yesterday. No mishaps to speak of so that's good. Unfortunately we are back to hot weather. "Very unusual" -- boy am I getting tired of hearing that one.
New apartment is not at all what I envisioned. Its fine but on the third floor, under the eaves so it's hot. Fortunately we have fans -- both of which I have got blowing on me right now. The location of the apartment is more suburban than rural. The town of Kuchl is nice -- small but nice (a few shops, a couple of restaurants). Our hosts are also nice -- very friendly and eager to help.
Just found out this evening we can open the skylight in bathroom-- that will make a big difference
We took it easy today. Walked to the grocery store and also around the town after lunch at a local restaurant. Dinner was sandwiches in the apartment. Kind of depressing. I think I am really just tired and the idea of more sight seeing -- crowds, lines, etc. is not very appealing to me right now. Five months is a long time to stay enthusiastic.
We plan on going into Salzburg tomorrow so that will likely help with my mood. I'll let you know how it goes. Probably shouldn't have written tonight given my poor attitude but wanted to let you know we are okay. How about I let the pictures do the talking? Russell does such a good job with them and you never know what kind of mood he was in when they were taken.
