Corner view: Anything goes ...





I have mentioned before how much I appreciate the public transport system here in Vienna. I really enjoy riding the tram cars.

The above pics are from Matzleinsdorfer Platz tram stop which is subterranean and has fascinated me since the first time I passed by with tram 18 from Westbahnhof to Südbahnhof. It was like stepping 50-60 years back in time. The other day I took the tram again and it looks like there is a lot of restauration work going on. I just had to get off and take some pics. I somehow hope that those cool ceramic walls will be preserved ...

This is also a auf Wiedersehen to Vienna ... I am travelling back to Málaga today ...

  7. Europe has made me a subway junkie too! I love the freedom of having a subway system. Unfortunately, I only have that when I am visiting Europe. Hard coming home and having to rely on the car again ...

    Love your tributes to the subway! xo
