Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?
Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Judy munches a Wienerschnitzel
Judy and I are waiting for our flight back from Vienna to Berlin. we had two nice days in the Austrian capital, despite cold, snowy conditions. Last night we went a restaurant famous for its Wienerschnitzel. what you see on Judy's plate is only HALF of one of those monstrosities. Thankfully we had enough foresight to share one of those breaded, then baked veal cutlets. It was a yummy meal.
Earlier in the day we had visited the Schloss Schoenbrunn where we saw the royal chambers of the Habsburg dynasty. With a tram and metro transportation pass we were able to criss-cross Vienna and warm up in between stops.
Walking around in the evening we saw the famous Fiakers, horse-drawn carriages. Well, we had to think of our buggy ride with Carl just a few weeks ago.
We will spend another two days in Berlin before flying home on Sunday. Bis dann,
