This weekend there is a street artist festival on at Karlsplatz. We went down there last night to check out which creatures that crawled out after dark, and found a vibrant and interesting scene with many different acts.
These guys were running a water bar… with various flavoured water. But what was the coolest part was really how the bar looked 😛I really like the way the light illuminates those bottles.
There were several fire shows, probably because they look the best in the dark so they were saved for after sunset.
but we also saw jugglers, people with amazing acrobatic skills, singers and other musicians, and of course many interesting locals. 🙂
Check it out this afternoon if you’re interested!
My better half’s company had a customer visiting last weekend, and I was treated to a Fiaker ride, as some of the people were not able to come. I was excited, as I’ve never imagined myself wanting to pay for a ride through the streets. It was definitely fun being the one inside the carriage for a change.
It was funny to see people taking photos. I have done it myself of course, but it’s still weird going through the streets having loads of people take photos of your ride as if you were some sort of celebrity…
The photos from my phone didn’t yield the best results, but somehow they are cool anyway. They show movement and action. And I was having too much fun to be obsessed about taking perfect pictures. 😀
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.
