Like a fairyland . . .

.

Vienna's Christmas markets were fun because I got to see all the things you never see in Israel.
Like gingerbread houses! 


And snow globes!
The Schneekugel was apparently invented in Vienna.


I had to laugh, though, at these thumbs-up lollipops.


Nice German names for the Christmas cupcakes.


This particular market, one of many in Vienna, was the Weihnachtsmarkt am Stephansplatz, right at the base of St. Stephen's Cathedral with its multi-colored tile roof.

Ah, I'd love to still be in peaceful Austria, especially tonight when the fighter jets keep roaring over my place, after rockets were fired from Lebanon into the Western Galilee and Israel responded with artillery fire, etc. etc.
It's a whole different world . . . .

Hopefully things calm down soon.

The snowglobes remind me of the many my mother collected.

So peaceful and festive in Austria, the opposite of Meitar right now. Safety, Dina! Peace to you.

Oh Dina, stay safe in your corner of the world. And your comments are so true - travel opens such doors to experiences I'd never have back in my old world and opens my eyes to both the similarities and differences. So enriching. I am with Tom, thumbs up to you Dina, keep the updates coming.
