Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

To wrap up my visit to Salzburg I bought a 28,00 Euro ticket for the 19:30 performance of Richard Strauss's Die Fledermaus, which is a rather silly story that provides the frame on which to hang the most famous waltzes in the world.
It was great fun to see 3 puppet dancers perform the Blue Danube Waltz, along with several bats who reprised the waltz as part of a drunken partygoer's dream.
The puppets in this shot are from 1913, when the company first performed.
They put on a grand show and the puppets are works of art.
