Adam, our resident aviation expert,has a moment in the Frankfurt airport. He knows everything about every plane we travel on.

We were whisked away from unseasonably warm San Francisco to Vienna by way of Frankfurt. Vienna is wintry, but not that cold. We are settled in one of our favorite hotels, where we stay every time we come here, and with a day off tomorrow to recover and be ready for Saturday when we have an afternoon masterclass with Neue Wiener Stimme and an evening sing with people who will come to the concert on Sunday and want to sing with us. We've done that before and it's really fun - imagine us teaching a gospel to our Viennese friends...

Hard not to be happy about being in Vienna with some time to explore.
