4th of July Fireworks at Patrick Henry Village & Info About Some Events Going On This Year

It’s time to tell you about last year’s 4th of July (and some events going on this year). Yep, I’m officially a year behind, but the way events were spaced out toward the end of 2012, I should actually be able to catch up to this year in a couple months Read more →

Getting Permanent Housing in Patrick Henry Village

A view from the living room toward the kitchen and dining area.

Many people had told us not to accept the first place we were offered if we didn’t like it. Some places here are shabby, or lack things like a washer and dryer. Some have a separate room with an American washer and dryer while others have the smaller, stackable German Read more →

Wandering Hauptstraße and My First Österreicher Schokolade (Austrian Chocolate)

After Café Rossi, we walked back toward Hauptstraße (Main St.) and wandered, mostly just looking. We stopped in Chocolaterie St. Anna No. 1, which is actually on St. Anna Gasse, a slight right off Hauptstraße if you’re coming from Bismarckplatz (Bismarck Square).
