In the 22nd district there are quite a few greenhouses. In-between houses, train lines and fields… It’s an odd but pleasing mix. 🙂
Looking north on Alte Donau you can see just how dreary and grey the city has been in the last couple of weeks. At least we’ve survived January, only two more months left of winter! The birds are making the most of the sheet of ice that’s covering part of the water, I suppose we should take a leaf out of their book.
In some of the parks here (this one is far out by Donauzentrum) they have chess boards. Large ones. In other cities I’ve often seen them, but not in use. Seems that Vienna is one place where old guys especially take things quite seriously when it comes to huge chess. These guys were pretty into their game. I suppose any day now outdoor chess season is over..
