Vienna, Austria: Day 1

Today was amazing. We went to Mozart's house. He changed residences in Vienna 11 times but the apartment that we were in today was where he lived from 1784 to 1787. These years are considered his most productive where he was writing about six pages of manuscripts daily. It was in this apartment that he completed the opera "The Marriage of Figaro". We stopped in a tiny Viennese restaurant and had Weiner Schnitzel with Apple Strudel for desert. Lastly we decided to go to a concert. We saw an amazing performance of pieces by Mozart (including some that were written just steps away) and Strauss.
We are starting to get really tired after all of this excitement...
