2012-02-24 Every winter, the city of Vienna creates a large ice skating rink in front of City Hall. Last Tuesday was costume day (Mardi Gras, Faschingsdienstag). Not many people actually dressed up. Here is one at least with a pirate's hat.
2011-12-21 Only two more days to find those presents and souvenirs. This is a small corner of the huge advent market in front of the City Hall (Rathaus) in Vienna. So many tourists come that the city now requires 'bus passes' in advance - otherwise the buses are not allowed downtown. Enjoy your day!

2011-12-15 Advent markets can be very cold. A bit of warm carbohydrate (and a glass of warm punch) stave off the cold.
Many thanks for your comments on the angel tree ornament.
