And Wirtshaus Kultur.
A semi-solo weekday wander.
Last week I toured the new Haus der Geschichtes Österreich (House of Austrian History), a museum that recently opened in a wing of the former Hapsburg Palace. The museum’s focus is on Austria from 1918 forward, when the Empire was dissolved.
One might be surprised at what there is still to learn.
Most certainly not a getaway in a romantic French château.
Once upon a time Japan was terra incognito. Then along came Commander Perry in 1845 to “suggest” (he brought his fleet of American warships as a calling card) that Japan end its policy of national seclusion by opening its ports to trade, and the fascination with the exotic began.
“Open every Sunday.” Just one of the many reasons to love Paris.
