Day one in Vienna

In the morning of our first day in Vienna, we attended Leila's practice session at the Konzerthaus. Then we all went to lunch with Leila at Cafe Schwarzberg. Instead of having dessert there, we visited a multi-storied pastry shop that Leila told us about. Outside the shop, we stopped to take some pictures of the winter palace in the city center. After an afternoon nap, we attended Leila's concert, where she once again received enthusiastic ovations, complete with her performing an encore. She introduced us to parents of a friend of hers and the five of us then went to dinner at Plachutta Wollzeile, which specializes in many types of boiled meat which we loved. Finally, we walked by St. Stephen's Cathedral on the way back to hotel at midnight.

Here are pictures, except of course for the performance where pictures were not allowed:
