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.

Yesterday we went to the International Bazaar held by the local chapter of the United Nations Women’s Guild annually here in Vienna, Austria.

On the top floor of the bazaar there are booths from around the world, with handmade arts and crafts from each country or region of the world. Doesn’t that already sound lovely? But wait. When you head downstairs, you find yourself in a room twice the size, filled with stands serving food from each of the countries represented upstairs. Live music and tons of people to accompany, all with the same international background. How fun!

One our way back into the city, we caught the last of the sun falling behind the Vienna International Centre’s modern structures.

The landscape from the work window. A scene that we see five days a week; a scene that may be shrugged off because it seems so ordinary. But isn’t it fantastic?

This composition was taken first thing in the morning, overlooking what was once a marshy area and has now become a lovely summertime area to take a dip and or an autumn-time stroll to enjoy the changing season.
