couchantAs the sunset the day before had been magnificent [thanks to the current air pollution!], I attempted to catch it from a nice spot and went to the top of the nearby hill. The particles were alas (!) not so numerous that evening and so I only got this standard view of the sun going down. Incidentally, I had read a few days earlier in the plane from Vienna that the time and date when Monet’s Impression, Soleil Levant was painted had been identified by a U.S. astronomer as 7h35 on the 13th of Novembre 1872. In Le Havre, Normandy. An exhibit in the nearby Musée Marmottan retraces this quest…

Early morning today, following my Linz guests’ advice, I went running towards the top of Pöstlingberg, a hill 250m over Linz and the Danube river. A perfect beacon thus avoiding wrong turns and extra-mileage, but still a wee climb on a steep path for the last part. The reward of the view from the top was definitely worth the [mild] effort and I even had enough time to enjoy a good Austrian breakfast before my ABC talk
