“Travels to a Different Time” : 27May1975: Vienna, Austria: The Germans Are Becoming a Nuisance!

Need I describe Viennese weather anymore? I roused my low moraled body up and had an edible breakfast. I planned to have a shower but the facilities were full of Germans. I postponed my shower until after dinner. Germans in my age bracket are so easy to get along with. The elderly seem cranky and unfriendly. Perhaps they have bad war memories? It is the 30–50-year-old bracket in tourist destinations who tend to be loud, brash and swaggering and it gets worse when they drink. I speak in generalities. Austrians are more reserved than Germans. I had a long walk in the woods and was home at 16:00 for a glorious hot shower that perked up my morale. I had supper at 17:30 and after a couple of hours of listening to the sounds of the campground I drifted off to sleep. I am Budapest bound tomorrow!
