Good news

29 Jul

It doesn’t happen often, but this morning it happened again–there was something on the front page of the Kurier that was so interesting it made me break my habit of starting at the back of the Saturday insert and working my way through the paper from back to front. And this time it was good news. The Austrian team has reached the quarter-finals of the Women’s European Football (Soccer) Championship. They’re playing Spain tomorrow at 6 p.m. Guess who will be watching. 🙂

Tattoos in Vienna

22 Jul

The Kurier today quoted the statistic that 1/3 of all Austrians have at least one tattoo. It is hot enough at the moment that you can see evidence of that. In fact, based on what I saw on the U2 this afternoon, I would say that it looks more like 1/2.

First Day of the School Holidays

1 Jul

I love the first day of the school holidays, especially when it’s bright but not too hot. The streets are quiet. There are no lines in the supermarket. Those of us who have remained in the city are more relaxed. Great!
