On rather Stein, that is, which is part of Krems nowadays but a great deal older. Lovely medieval buildigs overall - admittedly, many of them rebuilt several times during the last century or five - and gorgeous iced coffee to have, which is a blessing in this heat.

We visited the shop of the Bailoni apricot distillery and bought various sorts of apricot liquor (in tiny little flasks) and apricot-filled chocolate that might not survibe tha journey home in this heat. If it melts, then sadly, we'll have to make the ultimate sacrifice and eat it ourselves, instead of giving it away. Life is hard sometimes...

Right now, a storm is brewing, but I hope to manage another short trip to the city centre before it breaks out in earnest.

I do. It rained for about 15 seconds, but by then I was back already. I bought apricot lemonade (yes, they make that, too!!!!), and a little booklet by a famous Austrian baker, Lisl Wagner-Bacher, with her favourite apricot recipes. You know, I was very fond of apricots all my life, but I think I'm developing a true obsession. *g*

Sounds like a good obsession to have!

Those medieval buildings sound fascinating. Ooh, chocolate, apricot chocolate! Divine.

Did the chocolates melt?

No. But we got to keep them anyway, as we found very funny little gifts for our friends and decided that they are much more original than just merely chocolate. *g*

Woah. You weren't kidding about those portion sizes.
That's a HUGE!

Glad it's been such a great trip! :)
