Now that things have calmed down, I did something I have been meaning to do lately, which was to walk through town with my camera and take photos of anything that caught my eye. This view is one of Innsbruck’s most famous, with the Golden Roof and the snowy Alps in the background, found on many postcards. The Christkindlmarkt is set up here, and people convene to drink Glühwein and eat Kiachl. This is a Tirolean specialty only available at this time of year, and consists, roughly speaking, of a life-raft-shaped unsweetened doughnut which is filled with either Preislbeeren (like cranberry preserves) or Sauerkraut: lots of vitamin C in either choice, to help get you through December

That's what I like about your blog -- if you find it interesting, important, or amusing, you blog about it and your personality, as far as I can tell, really comes through. Great job. — And the pictures are just awesome. "
