  4. Hi Lara,
    I was in Austria for the Fasching Carnival in the early '70's.
    Had all but forgotten.
    What a fun picture. :-)
    We also took a night train to Vienna in order to take in the Opera. Wonderful memories.
    Thanks for sharing

  8. Looks like an interesting carnival.

    Thanks for visiting.

    I am a teacher of English as a second language. I am privileged to have a11 year old boy from Austria. I haven't met him yet, and it will be interesting to have him in my special room.

    Last year, I had a girl from Iceland, she started with no English, then she became very good.
