Like the previous day, my Sunday in Vienna began with some early lectures. When I was finished with those, I wandered around the meeting exhibits to replenish my supply of pens and sticky notes, recaffienate myself, and oh yeah, maybe learn a few things too.

Is it just me, or does this sound somewhat sinister?

With a head full of knowledge, and a caffeinated spring in my step, I wandered about in search of more interesting things to photograph. I found Hochstrahlbrunnen Fountain (dry for the winter), which, I learned from a sign, was put into operation by Emperor Francis Joseph I on October 24 (my birthday!), 1873 (not my birth year!) in a celebration to open Vienna’s first springwater main.

I also added another church to my growing collection and enjoyed some signs of spring in Stadtpark.

I wandered around Stephansplatz for a while, and although the crowds were out, it was a Sunday, so nothing was open except for cafes and, of course, souvenir shops. I was beat from getting up quite early and walking around, so I headed back to the hotel to work and rest up for my last day.
