Baby, it's cold out there!
Christmastime in Vienna

Cold
Baby, it's cold out there -
the windchill factor must have been
below zero on that icy afternoon
at Graben Square

Hot
Georg Raphael Donner's Young River Traun
evidently does not feel the cold at all -
he continues fishing for a Christmas carp,
wintry chill and Christmas trees
would not deter him from his endeavours
Providentia Fountain

  1. If I could be kitted out like the lady in orange I'd brave any degree of chill!

  3. It's a jungle out there! Does Hermes have a pre-Christmas sale? Those elegant ladies hunting for a beautiful scarf bargain can be vicious - hence the necessity to blend well with the background ;-).
    Is Christmas carp also a traditional dish for the Christmas Eve in Austria?
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Oh yes, we had some chilly days... I love the shiny bottom cheek of Traun. Does it bring luck to touch him there? Maybe I should try it...
