  1. Now I'm so homesick. Graben is one of my favorite places in the inner city. How many hours have I whiled away at a table, sipping beer and people-watching!

  2. Friday afternoon was a perfect time to do just that. I chose the "Immervoll" corner on Franziskanerplatz (reading about Beethoven and how he had to take refuge at "Zum Blumenstock" in Ballgasse around the corner when Napolean's troops attacked the Mönker Bastei where he lived then, at the Pasqualatti house).


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
