Hello Everyone! Im sure you are all excited that we are almost home! We are excited too! Psych! Ok, we ARE excited to come home, but we like traveling too. Today we did the Salt mines and the Sound of Music. For breakfast we had a hard stale roll...for 1.50. Eden still cant breath, but shell survive. After breakfast we got on the tour bus and headed for the salt mines. We had to suffer through cheesy tour guide jokes, but actually some of them were funny. We got to wear these coverall things that look like space suits (you are so right brittany). Then we got to ride the train--which is a little ackward since you have to straddle a complete stranger. We got stuck with the same guy twice...by the end of the tour we were all pretty close. We felt like 2 of the 7 dwarves. Heather would be "Clumsy" (she trips over a lot)and Eden would be "Messy" (since it has been diffult getting food from her hand to her mouth) There were these wooden slides that were really long and steep. There was also an underground lake of brine that we got to go accross on a boat. They turned off the lights and there was some kind of light show. Also there was creepy music. We felt like we were in Willy Wonka-you know, the part with the boat. We got a free salt shaker at the end of the tour. Our first souvenir!
Next was the sound of music tour. We learned a lot! For example the mountain that the Von Trapps excaped on in the movie would have led them strait to Hitlers headquarters. That is just one of the many trivial things we will be able to tell zyou about when we get back. Austria is beautiful! We will try to write again tomorrow. Bye!
