The Mocca Club at Wienzeile
Remembrance of Things Past


Once upon a time


there was this beautiful place


a favorite hang-out
not only of students from
the nearby Vienna Technical University


Turkish coffee and other delights, now only a memory -
this happens even in Vienna where time's supposed to stand still

“Remembrance of things past
is not necessarily the remembrance
of things as they were.”
Marcel Proust

Is it?

The Heat's On
Summer in Vienna


Apricot Tart
Better bake it at sunrise
when the night's cool breeze is still
coming down from the Vienna Woods


If you can't stand the Heat anymore
get out of the kitchen and search
for cooler grounds


Merisi's Way
Hot Espresso with cold milk
and a nut cake, keeps you
from going nuts yourself

camera bags don't look good with sundresses, after all -
