A Viennese Ball

February 3, 2014

Last night we got to go to a the Technical University Ball at the Hofburg. We made the journey via tram in our long gowns and tuxes and arrived at around 11:00 pm. It was so beautiful inside the building and there were several different rooms dedicated to different kind of dancing. There was the main ballroom, which was more formal and it was mostly couples who actually knew how to dance. There was also a salsa room and a disco room. It was all very elegant and so so fun.
