Explored the Erzsébetváros and Jewish Quarter of Vienna where I am staying. The day seems robbed with sunset at 4:45pm. The early darkness had its reward as I strolled Margaret Island on the Danube River under a full moon and was surprised by the twilight fountain light show choreographed to music.
