I was trying to take a photo of the strange yoga group at the side of the Karlskirche. I kind of didn’t succeed…
This is on now and until Saturday, just a very nice street party in the 4th district with good food, live bands and drinks. And a great atmosphere! 🙂
When I’m here at this intersection I am on the home stretch. Just up Argentinienstrasse behind St. Elisabeth there! 🙂
It’s a brand new day! It’s holiday! Yay! My dad is visiting with his partner, so I’ll be all over town the next few days, I expect 🙂 here is a morning scene from my hood. Sunshine! Yesss!
History from Wikipedia:
The construction of the Upper Belvedere began as early as 1717, as testified by two letters that Prince Eugene sent from Belgrade to his servant Benedetti in summer 1718, describing the progress of work on the palace. Construction was so far advanced by 2 October 1719 that the prince was able to receive the Turkish ambassador Ibrahim Pasha there
Looking pretty flash!! There will be hundreds, if not thousands of new offices, flats, shops, etc…. Still about half a year to wait though! But definitely looking impressive.
In the 4th district and all over town! We’ve been so spoiled the last four days.. I’m loving it!! I hope it lasts longer!
