My dear lords and ladies,

I apologize for the bandwith but I would like to invite you to join my walk through the Schatzkammer (Treasury) in Vienna, Austria (Europe) this Friday:

"Austria, Vienna - Treasury / Schatzkammer" (click on "original article" below)

I want to share this great impressions and hope that the photos I uploaded to my flickr account will maybe help you with your research projects, entertain you,... and maybe inspire some of you to visit Vienna :)
