Oh Vienna...
Vienna is a lovely city. Beautiful, friendly, young and horny. It's the location of EuroPride this year. Rooms are £40 a night, food and beer are cheaper than London and there's lot's to see and do. We also managed to stumble upon a sport's night in one of the leather clubs. Bliss. No matter which venue we went to I seemed to be very popular. Every which way I turned I was greeted with a smiling face or a wink. Needless to say, fun was had. Thank you Marky for arranging it all. Love ya.

My new motto...
Veni, Vidi, Visa: I came, I saw, I shopped

Vienna facts...
In 1930s the Synagogue in the Jewish quarter wasn't burnt down in case it set fire to the rest of the town. Nice of them.
The large cathedral in the centre is called St Stephen's and has an Arch Bitchop (sic).
Austrian's are 'fiercely resistant to change' and 'show this with some wit'. Er... really? Like the current policy of financial eugenics I suppose.
The Blue Danube is sometimes Green but usually Grey or Brown. Facts we just couldn't live without.
The Austrian Ministry of War was recently (only recently!) renamed the Ministry of Defence.
Strauss was witty. Had no children, practiced conducting in front of a mirror, always had his beard to the latest fashion, and dyed his hair. Sounds like a Queen.

While I was resting...
Nice to see the video to Kylie's Your Disco Needs You on MTV. I thought of you, Dave.
