Up and Across

A couple of weeks ago, the “long night of the churches” took place in Austria. We were in Vienna and decided to take a stroll to pop in on some of the churches that had concerts. Other activities were offered, too, such as guided tours, talks, and discussions, but we wanted to stick with the music. It was great. On our way to the Greek Orthodox Church we had to cross Stephansplatz, but it was impossible. The crowd was backed up all the way into the adjacent streets, so we couldn’t even see what was going on. Pushing our way through the masses, we finally saw what had drawn all the people to this place: A tightrope walker 60 meters (about 200 feet) above ground who walked between the two towers of the church. The Catholics are still good at spectacles!
