It looks like a plum tree. Quite cool to find fruits here :-D But all the low-hanging fruit had been picked already. I quite miss having a real garden these days. I’d love to be able to grow food. I know there are garden patches on the donauinsel where I could plant things, but that’s a bit far away…
My favourite beer garden on Billrothstrasse :-) I’ve posted about this before, as it’s the place where I take people to taste Austrian food, it’s affordable and good.
Today we got to witness the ritual, as we happened to be in the right place at the right time!
The friends and family prepared a cart for the student, and pulled her through the city to the well.
She climbed up on the fountain
Placed flowers in her basket
And kissed her cheek!
You could tell she was very stoked to have finished her degree. Couldn’t help but feel a bit touched watching this. :-)
Just a picture I snapped at our local subway station. :-) now there is a vote on for the new subway line, whether ie should be pink or turquoise. I voted the latter.
This little girl gets kisses and flowers from the PhD students after they are finished. They climb up and kiss her on the cheek, and then they put flowers on the dome. Nice tradition :-)
This used to be Floriditas, but it recently changed its name and logo. It’s just off Kärntnerstrasse in the first district. I’ve never been in, but I have friends who love it and make their way there every week. Seems a decent place to shake loose ;-)
Out looking at the local life today I saw these words on the wall. On holiday those words are very true :-D
