Today after class a few of us went to the Donau Insel because it was going to be the last hot day for a while and we wanted to enjoy the weather. It was interesting to see how uninhibited the people here are when it comes to baring their bodies, especially the old people. They’re just so comfortable with showing skin.
After the Donau, we went to the Freud Museum for a group excursion. The Freud Museum is where Freud actually lived for about fifty years before moving to London in his final years. It was a very large apartment for the time, and even still is now. There were 19 rooms! But besides him and his wife there were six children, so I’m sure they appreciated the space. He held his practice within his home so I got to see where the famous couch would have been (the couch is kept at the museum in London).
