Arnold "The Terminator" Schwarzenegger Turns 60!

In honor of my study abroad trip to Austria, I want to wish Austrian Arnold Schwarzenegger a very Happy Birthday!
Happy Belated Birthday to the Terminator himself! Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor and Governor of California, turned the big 6-0 last week! In his honor, hometown Vienna, Austria, threw a party for him complete with homemade Austrine cuisine such as strudels, schnitzels and a gift -- the original street number from the house where he was born, Thal 145. According to an article at, officials proclaimed the day to be " A Day for Arnold." His birthplace is technically a southern village in Thal Bei Graz. The party featured a brass band, a priest and 59 people. In an interview with a local Vienna newspaper, Schwarzeneggr said he had one simple birthday wish -- a wish from a Governor's perspective: that the United States (his now adopted country) would recover its international prestige.
He was quoted in an interview in Sacramento saying "My wish is that this great country once again gets the reputation it once had around the world."
