This weekend the left wing parties, the KPÖ in the lead organises a big party with music and food and games in Prater. Jesuitenwiese is full of tents, stages, and wonderful smells of various international foods. 🙂
Worth a visit.
Cycle ways are actually quite good in Vienna. And as the city is relatively flat, it’s also an ideal way of getting around which doesn’t take much time compared to the subway and other public transport. I see many that can’t be bothered wearing a helmet in traffic though, which always makes me wonder whether people care at all about what’s inside their skulls. Even companies don’t seem to care here. In Norway everyone cycling for a courier service would most definitely wear helmets… And in NZ it is illegal to cycle without a helmet.
Lately the weather has been quite shifty. Today it is really beautiful though, with cotton clouds and nice sunshine. 🙂 Perfect cycle weather.
Today I’m being a student at WU, actually sitting up here in the gravity-defying building where there is a nice study area. The view is quite impressive, with the massive Prater park in front of me, and the siluette of the city in the background. I’m surprised at how many students are here already… courses only start in five weeks, and still it is reasonably full.
