Two news tidbits from yesterday’s free newspaper, “Heute” (Today)

22 Nov

Dunkin’ Donuts has finally made it to Vienna. Yesterday they opened a store on Mariahilfer Straße. Apparently, there was already a line when they opened at 7 a.m, and at its peak the waiting time was two hours!

The other bit of news that caught my eye was that 6% of Viennese apartments still have their WCs outside on the shared hall. It’s not so bad when you’re young and healthy. My first year in Vienna I lived in such a flat. It’s not so great as one’s bladder capacity starts to fail or when one has stomach flu. (Ick!)

(I hope everyone realizes that these are two *unrelated* news items!)
