(in the First District, a short walk vom St. Stephen's Cathedral)
A dear friend took me there yesterday. I fell in love with the excellent Melange and the congenial atmosphere there ("Melange" is viennese for "cappuccino"). "Markusplatz" is what I'd call a coffeehouse lover's heaven: Great coffee, great atmosphere and a big selection of newspapers! I'll have to go back there for more. And maybe better pictures!
I apologize for the oftentimes poor quality of my photos. This blog happened by chance: Instead of mailing pictures to my friends, I created this blog as a way for them to look over my shoulder while I am getting to know my new hometown.
I enjoy sharing my excursions also with people from all over the world who discover my notes from Vienna by chance, but sometimes I feel a little self-conscious about the limits of my enterprise. So, please, be warned, I am taking the pictures mostly on the side, with barely time to stop and point and shoot and oftentimes I'm shooting an the sly, not wanting to make anybody feel uncomfortable. Sometimes I wish I had a better camera, - especially a better zoom! -, but I know well it's not the camera that takes great pictures. Still, you are more than welcome to come along with me and enjoy Vienna as much as I do. It's sheer pleasure to share it with you all.
