It has been hot in Sulzburg this past week, hotter than I like. Sometimes it feels like the heat has me moving in slow motion.
There’s nowhere really to cool off. It isn’t like you can go to an air-conditioned movie theatre. They aren’t open.
There is a natural pool of sorts on the outskirts of the our village, but I have heard mixed reviews. The idea of cold water is appealing – but there is supposedly some sort of parasite in the water that causes skin discomfort. I’ll pass on that experience.
Saturday we went into the city, looking more for a different experience than for something cool. In Freiburg’s Seepark there was a nice breeze blowing by the lake and we found a bench in the shade. Hadn’t planned in it, but we stayed for almost six hours.
Today has been just as hot, and I thought some pictures of snow might cool me down. Not that I have really seen snow here. Sulzburg doesn’t seem to get any.
But two years ago we were in Vienna for a weekend and it snowed while we were there. I meant at the time to share some of the photos and stories with you, but got sidetracked.
That’s why you have a picture today of Schönbrunn Palace, a place I haven’t mentioned before. It has more than 1,400 rooms and a long history, and if we get some cool weather soon maybe I’ll share some stories.
Today though it is just too hot. Even with pictures of snow.
