Due to the fact that I woke up with heavy chest congestion, I asked Peggy if she would mind taking Kari and Mikaela into the city that day. I was concerned about committing myself to a lot of walking and I felt better about not ruining it for everyone else.
Peggy took the girls on the short excursion to see the Abbey in Melk, Austria. Since the city center was only half the distance and not uphill, Bryan decided to go into town instead.
The Melk Abbey was built in the early 1700’s. It managed to quickly gain fame due to its large collection of frescos and an immense library containing many ancient manuscripts and scrolls.
Today Monks run the Abbey and they take care of the upkeep. A school servicing nine hundred local school is also run out of the Abbey.
