John - Hallstatt, Austria

"I built my own boat in my garage. I brought it here to sail on the lake for the Corpus Christi Procession. My wife and my friend were going to come with me, but then my friend had a stroke, and my wife stayed back as well so I am here on my own today. Would you like a ride on my boat?"
Thank you, but I have to be on the ferry to catch a train. Your English is very good, did you ever live in America?
"No, I learned it in college in Vienna from two very good teachers. I am 73 now, so that was 51 years ago."
