It’s Thursday — hope the week is going well for everybody!

Often we head down to Naschmarkt in the evenings after work. It’s an open-air market where we usually food shop, and occasionally stop for a glass of wine. This being somewhat of a necessity after the 25-minute train-ride — yes, I’m being slightly facetious.

We live next door, which is not to say that the atmosphere has become dull and monotonous, rather that we find it comforting and nigh. It’s old-worldy, too! Check out the brass bar stool in the background below.

As we passed one of our favorite wine-vendors, the owner called to us to try a new wine!

This week he’s serving a fresh 2010 Grüner Veltliner — young and… — and we were more than delighted to be tasting it while hanging out in the evening sun!

The weather this weekend is supposed to be gorgeous in Vienna — high of 22° C — so there will be plenty of hangin’ around outdoors.

Hello friends! I have to say, it took some time for my eye to catch onto this detail. Here’s how my thoughts unraveled:

Oh look, they added a new symbol for the disabled… Strange how it overlaps the surveillance sign – what poor design.

They’re usually so good about design, why would they do that?

It must be an important sign.

What is it?

Oh, I see…!

This is apparently done by a street artist here in Vienna after a young couple were caught copulating on the subway. Crude. You can google the video yourself if you’re interested.

Hope you’re all having a lovely week so far! See you soon!
