High Altitude Walk
It is 5 AM, my business pick up is not until 8. After wake up coffee in my room I am off walking.The suburban streets are silent. There are no noisy garbage trucks roaming alleyways as in big cities. In the serenity I notice a few lights coming on in the typical two story neatly kept homes. I wobble on.
Then the narrow local street weaves its way upward and up again toward the Ambras Castle. They call is Schloss Ambras here. The massive structure was a favorite hideaway of Archduke Ferdinand [please check your history].
Snow gently falls. It is cold but still an exciting walk. Historic images fill my brain as I wobble quickly down the mountain. Now I am really ready to buy penicillin.
