Of course there was a lovely champagne reception after the ceremony
Jordan not only gave the valedictorian address, but he also received another award. At the reception, I met part of his ‘fan club’.
We got Jordan’s stuff together and left the palace
We stopped at a cafe adjoining a butterfly park to have a drink and so that I could give jordan the cards I had brought from home from quite a collection of friends The envelope held the cards. Before my flight for Vienna Marama, jane and I spent a couple hours in the Panera in Yorkville decorating the envelope for the cards. We started out with only a couple markers, but the waitress soon brought us a box of crayons
We then went to a rooftop restaurant for a celebratory dinner
To finish out the day, we went back to the Hofburg Palace to a different spot for a concert by the Hofburg symphony
The lighting was adequate
