Ping pong in Styria

This pic was taken last night, when it was still summer. Today there is snow on the tops and even though the sun reappeared after the mist and rain, it feels like winter. Because of the weather we visited the Benedictine monastery of Admont, whose massive and ancient library is said to be the eighth wonder of the world. I found myself exercised by the concept of this extravagant space where only a chosen few will ever see the books - and I realised that the effect of all this exuberantly baroque Catholicism was to bring out a rather Protestant me. No ping pong tonight - we're playing cards. Martin is winning. Can't have that!
