Vienna Told in Pictures

It has been another fine day, a bit cold out first thing, warmer as the day slipped away, into the afternoon. As it is still a public holiday all the shops are shut, apart from the fast-food joints.

I had to go and see the Big Ferris Wheel and it did not fail to impress.

Now I can’t get that dam Harry Lime theme out of my head, is surrounded by fairground rides, sideshows and yes more fast food joints. After a lazy stroll around the amusement park, boy some of these rides look scary – the traditional chair-o-planes would have been my limit.

Did you ever wonder what they did before selfies?

Next the Danube, a little uninspiring after Passau, onwards and upwards to the Folkstheater aria of the city, with more 19-century architecture than you can shake a stick at, sadly most of it was shrouded in scaffolding.

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven

When did you last see one of these machines? the last one I remember was in Woolworth’s in Dunfermline and that wasn’t yesterday? For 20cents this one told me I weighed in at 77 kilograms, that’s in old money that’s about 12 stone, and by the rule of thumb you subtract 7 Lbs for clothing

Grand Design – and under the eve was all decorated

this is the townhouse and as you can see they have the builders in

I asked what all the tents were being erected for and was told a marathon

You will never get off the ground with those wee wings hen.

Looking more and more like a builders calender

The End
