The trees looked like this about four years ago when I arrived in Vienna. I found it fascinating. I thought it might be bird’s nests, but concluded that there were too many of them. It’s some form of parasitic plant, which doesn’t hibernate in winter.
So, I’ve documented some of these guys around the place. Considering how they are perceived, I’m surprised how frequently they are used in logos here in Austria… Onve again we are on Vollzeile in the 1st district.
This dig seemed like he had had a lot of practice posing! Seen in a display window in Vollzeile.
Today it’s raining, so here is a picture from yesterday 🙂
My old neighbourhood. Far in the back is the mall at Wien Mitte.
We’ve had gorgeous weather today. I spent a few hours in Prater, and feel revived!
Today is the first time this year that I walked up to Kahlenberg. It’s still nice! A few birds could be heard, and the little creek is alive with meltwater.
Still a lot of snow on the sides of the road! And it was cold… -1. But it felt good. No wind, sunshine at my back… yeah. 🙂 A good way to start the day!
So today the subway was totally incapacitated, and Quando (the app for Wienerlinien) told me that there was a Rettungseinsatz AND Polizeieinsatz and whatnot on my normal route to work… so I arrived to Heiligenstadt on the Sbahn. Going to and from work is the only thing that’s happening nowadays.
