GUESSING, AUSTRIA (AP) - It was another chance to tuck into a schnitzel. But Arnold Schwarzenegger’s visit to a small eastern Austrian town had a more compelling purpose.

Austria’s most famous living son is proud of his record of greening California while governor. So his visit to Guessing, which meets its energy needs through renewables, was fitting.

In both Guessing and California, “the world has already become a better one,” he told fans and dignitaries gathered in his honor Sunday.

After a lunch of Wiener schnitzel and Kaiserscharrn _ chopped up pancakes with jam _ Arnie toured the village’s energy plants, describing his push for green energy as “my crusade.”

And yes, the “Terminator” star did say, “I’ll be back.”
