We attempted to navigate the Austrian train station, which proved a complete failure. One English-speaking station worker, three trains, a twenty-minute walk, and an hour and a half later, we managed to meet Alex at the monastery where he works as a tour guide. His skills at this job proved useful, as we met a canon who showed us the monastery’s organ from 1648, the place where they had been producing wine for 900 years, and the grand interior of the church. That night, we attended an Austrian operetta called The Bet.
