While I lived in Austria Dec. 1969 to Oct 1971 I experienced some interesting things.
I wrote some of my blog entries about my experiences there as an LDS missionary:
And I saw three plays while in Vienna because a member was an usher at one of the theaters; he got us tickets at three different places.
In the description of this song, the Impossible Dream”, tells about my mission some.
I also saw the Operetta “the Land Of Smiles” in German
And a Russian opera which was trash.
Also while in Leoben, I saw the movie “Paint Your Wagon”. A member had asked us to watch it and tell
him about the Mormon in the show and if that could have been true or not.
No it couldn’t have been. Just Hollywood.
What an interesting time to be in Vienna, Austria.
The Salt Talks were happening in Vienna while I was there.
We often walked past the American Embassy.
It was a great feeling to see the 2 Marines at the door.
The Vietnam war was going then.
We didn’t know much of what was going on in the USA but we did about Europe.
Here’s another song description that tells some about my time in Austria.
A different time a different me.
What a great experience for a young man to have.
