europe: star wars

Saturday, August 21, 1999

One last thing. After failing to get theatre tickets last night, I decided to go to a movie. As it turned out, “Star Wars Episode I” was opening this weekend, so I was able to see it on its second day in English and without subtitles. The movie theatre was like American ones, but seats were assigned (and cost different for different locations—comparable prices, thought) and there was no AC (surprise, surprise).

The movie was much better the 2nd time and the audience did not get up until after the credits had rolled through, which was weird.

We’re pulling into Salzburg now, so I’ll be signing off.
