MEDICAL CHRONICLES|14| The(Photo)Story: Italy, Vienna, Old Town Hall & Jakominiplatz

tHello!
Happy weekend to you all or good day. (Depending on when you’re reading this ?).
I’m pretty much behind. Even though I make it through posting every day, I still don’t get to finish up! There’s just so much.

I’d just ask that you bear with me as I continue this “photo story” when I am in week 4. Ok? I have lot’s of photos to organise, edits to make here and there. Even though I don’t mind posting them without edits, they’re very large so I need to resize the photos at least and this has not been easy work for me.

My friend Lade and I visited Jakomiplatz on Thursday. Jakominiplatz (Ya-ko-mi-ni-pla-ts) is one of the largest squares in Styria. Styria is the capital of Graz, the city I lived It is occupied by shops, banks, dining facilities, rest places, lovely sites to behold, etc. There is also the Dorotheum  there.wp-1471701746468.jpeg

Friday the 15th, my friend and I were meant to be in Florence, Italy. I was ready to get an express ticket to the Uffizi gallery but we experienced a hitch. The Uffizi gallery is one of the world’s oldest and finest galleries. It houses all sorts of notable works including Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus, Michaelangelo’s Doni Tondo, Lorenzo Monaco’s Coronation of the Virgin, Gentile da Fabriano’s Adoration of the Magi, Leonardo da Vinci’s Annunciation
I just can’t get to naming others without having an emotional breakdown. ????I had already imagined being lost with wonder in this gallery. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the trip.

Ms. Stradner’s office arranged for a FREE tour for the students present so we decided to participate in it and visit Vienna the next day. Even though I couldn’t make it to Uffizi this time, I am privileged to have been on this tour. We met at Hauptplatz and toured The Old Town Hall. My Tour Guide was the amazing David Zottler. If you are in the area and need a tour guide, you can contact him by clicking is name above. He is an awesome guide and every moment was worth it.
Be sure to come back if you want to learn some astounding history, stories and/or see the photos from this great experience.
Medics and non-medics, I visited the birthplace of percussion! I mean, the birthplace of the procedure and the actual home of the inventor!

Pleeease, come back for the full gist.

Saturday the 16th, we took a ride to Vienna(the capital of Austria) in a stranger’s car. The full story is coming your way shortly. We didn’t do so much but we had a very funny experience. It was good. Ok for a less than 24hour visit. We travelled back to Graz same day and had a good evening.

This was some “random” guy on an elevator in Vienna who said, “I might just see myself on Facebook.” Well, here you are on my blog. ?
