A year of music, study, travel, sightseeing & friends.

Day 326 — Leaving—no, still in Vienna
23-Jun-1972 (Fri.)


[1st entry in Journal #2]

To backtrack a day:

I was supposed to leave on the 22nd but I was being pretty stupid and I convinced myself that 22:00 was 12:00, when it was really 10:00. So after saying goodbye to everyone at the café, I only arrived 2 hours later for the train.

So the next day—the 23rd—I spent seeing a few museums and doing nothing. Bad news. Pavel failed his audition.

Well, finally left on the train.


Journal #2. As I mentioned, I am now using the second journal from 1972, as the first one was filled up. As I remember, on the last page of journal #1, I said, “I’m leaving for Poland.”

What happened? On the 22nd, I’m apparently at a café saying goodbye to friends. Then head on home and to the train station, only to find out that I missed the train. Nice going, John. Mr. College Graduate. So, I spend today, the 23rd, in museums until it’s time to go. I’m fairly certain that 22:00 is 10:00 pm. I hope.

Leaving for Poland. Really. Today, I go.
