Drinking water

8 Oct

Drinking water from a fire hydrant? Yes, in Vienna, where a Viennese friend once proudly said that here we flush our toilets with water others buy in supermarkets. (It comes from the mountains, thanks to Kaiser Franz Josef. Mentioned here: https://ecbinvienna.com/2022/01/04/08-breitenfurter-strase-to-alterlaa/)

In this case, there is a sponsored run to support cancer research today and the runners apparently will be able to get water at this station near the Narrenturm. (More about the Narrenturm here: https://www.nhm-wien.ac.at/en/narrenturm)
