Sankt Andrä am Zicksee

Today we were in Sankt Andrä visiting with more family members. The two girls in this family were both in the U.S. last year and spent some time with us in Minnesota. We will spend more time with this family tomorrow.

On our way to dinner we stopped at a home in Sankt Andrä where some monks are establishing an Eastern Orthodox Monastery. They hope to build a permanent monastery within the next year or so. The monk that we met with was very kind and told us a little bit about the Eastern Orthodox religion. These two pictures are from their chapel.

Tonight’s dinner was at a Heuriger (kind of like a tavern) and we had a typical Burgenländische evening meal. Bread, cheese, assorted meats, some vegetables. Und Schmalz mit Grammeln (lard with crispy bits).

We have really enjoyed some delicious food on this trip!
