Vienna off the beaten Path
Or is it? Coffee's included, no matter what

One of the smallest coffee houses -
if not "the" smallest - of Vienna

Oh là là, a Love Affair
My friend, the no coffee please C,
here in Vienna, she fell for it,
lock, stock, and barrel

Down Under
Where biped meets
one-legged table

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 -
