Vienna, Austria, taken on January 16, 2014
I went to St. Marx cemetery to see Mozart’s resting place on a chilly, misty morning in Vienna. No one else was around, and the silence was so piercing that it was even a bit creepy. Yet something lingered in the air that gave the atmosphere a mysterious sense of serenity and beauty as I walked through rows and rows of graves and tombstones. May your souls rest in peace.
My exploration of Glasgow’s city centre brought me to the Necropolis, a huge cemetery situated on a hill next to the gigantic Glasgow Cathedral. It is an important landmark of Glasgow and one that I didn’t know much about, but the slow walk up the hill brought me some unexpected relaxation and some great views from the top.
[Travel time] I went to St. Marx cemetery in Vienna just to see Mozart’s final place of rest. Many songs could have played in my head as I stood there alone, yet the little tune of “Eine kleine nachtmusik” was the one that appeared over and over. This must be one of the most universally recognized tunes ever.
