Sometimes in the winter, Kai does some some sketching, especially if he has certain commitments that he wants to gather material and ideas for. Behind him here up on the hill is the old Capuchin Monastary and Church, another familiar landmark in the city.



He says he actually prefers Salzburg in the wintertime, because it's so quiet and deserted. That's that same beautiful baroque fountain that we saw during the summer. Now it's all boarded up to protect it from the snow and ice.

Kai does many murals in the public buildings, schools and hotels around town. And here's he's having coffee with friends under one of his murals in the Pitter Hotel. Although it only took him about three days to put the actual mural on the wall, he spent the summer - as we saw - gathering his material for it.

It's not all just sketching and painting for an artist, the time comes when he must sell his works, too. And here's he's doing just that! Going in to the same little art gallery built into part of the old city wall.


And this is where our story of Salzburg began, and where it ends.

The village of Lech reflects the beauty and wonder of winter when it envelops the country.

Here the snow plow is clearing the main street after a heavy night of snow. Lech is located in the western or [[or Vorarlberg]] section of the country. Now the people don their skis to go to market, do their errands, or for women, even to get their hair done. And this fairy tale house is actually the town beauty parlor.
You know you'd expect the cold weather to stop the festivals, but not with the light-hearted Austrians. This just gives them an excuse to have winter festivals!
