Cooking ...

I like to try new recipes and this past week back in my own kitchen I have made Orangette's skillet carrots, Sopa de Castañas (Chestnut soup) from a recipe in The Moro Cookbook, and a banana bread from My New Roots, a.o. So this weekend I think I will eat out. 

Have a great weekend.

Corner view: Different perspective

It has been a week with very little time for internet or photography, but here is a view of my dining table with some fresh flowers and my notebook which has to be placed right there if I want to get on the internet until I get a more stable solution ...

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 ...

Stadtpark blues ...

These pictures are from Friday afternoon in Vienna's Stadtpark.

Saturday it was 18C and Sunday a little bit cooler, not really the temperatures for Christmas markets and Glühwein, but we were there :)

Friday 12 November 2010


I know it's a little early, but this weekend I really want to visit some of the Christmas markets that start this weekend as this will be my last one here in Vienna until February next year. So I hope the weather will behave ok :)

Last weekend I saw Wall Street: Money Never Dies, which I really liked, and I re-discovered this music. I have been listening to it all week.

Have a great weekend.

More from yesterday ...

these shots are from Floridsdorfer Markt ... Vienna's 21st district's market place. Not many shops or supermarkets are open on a Sunday in Vienna, neither the markets.

I got a new camera last week, a reflex one, and Sunday was the day to try it out. So it was nice to walk around shooting when there were almost no people around :)

Happy Friday

We have had some nice sunny days lately here in Vienna and you can still find flowers here and there.

Have a great weekend!

Corner view: Famous

I think this chestnut vendor in Salzburg has a very good business. He has his stall right in front of a famous building where a famous man was born in 1756.

A day in Salzburg ...

As we changed from summer time to winter time this weekend it was not so difficult to get up Sunday morning to ride about 3 hours by train to spend a beautiful day in Salzburg.
