One of les petites allées in the Spittelberg neighborhood of Vienna, where the opening of the Weihnachtsmarkt have spiced up the air, literally.

Below, the kind proprietor of this Glühwein und Punsch stand drinks himself contently to oblivion — before our very eyes. The first two spiced-wine drinks were €6, and a mere fifteen minutes later he went down to €2 each. His friend eventually stepped into the stand to monitor him.
