  1. Beautiful blue and white...I recently watched "Before Sunrise" and saw lovely scenes of this beautiful city. (I've seen it many times - to be honest.) I want a street poet to write a spontaneous poem for me too - no I want to be the one who writes the spontaneous poem... haha. Lovely blog, Merci.

    1. Cynthia,
      I need to watch to movie again, and if only to see if there are any locations left that I do not instantly recognize, now that I have lived here for some years! A while back, there were still the one or other blank spots. ;-)
      Thank you,
      Merisi

  2. I love taking a walk with you down the streets of Vienna! Such a great way to start my day -- any day. And I love the windows for today, the blue and white and so lovely! Hope your week is going well, Merisi! Enjoy!

    1. At a distance of three years, i look at my own pictures as if they were somebody else's, strange effect. ;-)
      Great week so far, massive thunderstorms out west brought cooler nights and perfect summer weather during the days.
      Hugs,
