November 11

7 Nov

A big day is coming up–November 11. For history buffs, it’s the commemoration of the Armistice, the end of the First World War. For others, it is the official start–at precisely 11 a.m.–of Fasching (what the Viennese call Carnival). This means, as today’s Kurier reminds me, that it is also the start of the Ball Season here. Get out your fancy shoes and limber up your dancing legs–the Ball of the Red Cross in Vienna is on the 20th.
