Grabbing Ghandi's Butt

While still in Vienna, we went to a public park called Prater and stopped by Wurstelprater, a nice little Austrian amusement park.

When we got there, it was later in the day. So we only went to Madame Tussaud's and rode the Wiener Riesenrad, a massive ferris wheel that was the tallest in the world from 1920 to 1985. (Facts are fun!)

Both are a good time.

I'd never been to a Madame Tussaud's before. It's realistic to the point of being creepy. 

Very creepy.

 I didn't understand the fascination that the german speaking world has with Hasselhoff. Until now. Even when he's made of wax, the man just oozes charisma.

 Hey Karl! Way to create a completely unrealistic utopian economic, social, and political system! I dig the hair though.

 Watch the throne, bitches. Moira takes a seat and pretends that she's the largest land owner in the world. (That's a messed up fact right there.)

 Oddly enough. This was the one display where they took "professional photos" and tried to sell them to you after. I wonder if they had the same set up with Bush...

 Ol' Siggy really helped me work through some things. It wasn't a very long session though.

We were in a car with two couples from Mexico. Which was quite the coincidence. They kept switching from Spanish to English. 

It was the first time I'd heard Spanish in quite some time. 

The view was purdy.

 They were going to tear this thing down in the early 1900s. Good thing they didn't. It provides some beautiful views.
