Margaret and I had a great experience in Vienna, except that we arrived at midnight with no place to stay. We decided we'd find a cafe and stay up all night... Well we discovered that Vienna was dead at midnight (at least in the part we were in!). So we ended up in Karlsplatz and settled down for a chat. That is, until a guy rollerbladed up to us and asked us if we weren't afraid of being raped. We hadn't been until then, but at that moment we were, and so we decided to seek out a hotel (even though it would blow our budget), rather than to chance it. It was here that we learned there are really 4 things you shouldn't give up while travelling (even when travelling cheaply):
1. Safety
2. Sleep (less taking the overnight train just to avoid paying for hotels)
3. Sustenence (no more just eating bread - man cannot live on bread alone)
4. Sights (don't miss out on something spectacular just because it costs something to get in)

On a lighter note: here is a picture of a guy with a really fun summer job (Margaret took this picture!).
