Chained to the Desk

Finally, bright sunshine!

Sadly, I had to stay inside the last days and write until the keyboard (almost ...) caught fire. Just 24 days left until the grand opening of the exhibition. But today I enjoyed a little bit time off with Felix. We walked all the way down into the heart of Vienna. Please, don’t ask my feet about the tour ... I visited Victoria – no, I went to the restaurant Philigrano, where Victoria is working as a chef. I booked a table for tomorrow evening. Sometimes I need a special reward after a hard week's work.

During our walk, I took some pictures of the narrow streets - including a peek of St. Stephans Cathedral - and of course the front of the restaurant. Btw. Philigrano was recently featured in Falstaff.

Maybe I won’t be tomorrow too greedy and take some pictures of the food for you!

Blood Lane....? there must be a story behind that!

Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue Replied to David Swatton 8 months, 3 weeks ago

Yes, blood ...  Actually, I don't have a really good explanation (maybe slaughter houses were nearby?). Sometimes it's not what it seems to be, because pronounciation and writing can cause a different meaning. For example: once it was named Kotgasse, but I also don't know, if its "shit lane" or Kot does mean something completely different. Funny, the Museum of peace is situated in this lane. grinning 
But I can tell you for sure, it is situated in the older parts of the inner city. All buildings are under protection, because they are historic building, which at least date back in the 16th and 17th century. Interesting parts are the arches between the buildings (flying butress?). They are specific architectural elements and necessary for structural reasons. They look like narrow brigdes high above over the street.

Reine Vorsichtsmaßnahme für die Blumen, da es nochmal richtig kalt werden könnte.

Thanks for taking me on a walk. I didn't get tired at all but definitely enjoyed the surroundings.
It would be lovely to see what you eat tomorrow night, but then again it might not be so lovely as some of us might get too jealous.
Anyway enough rambling, loved the pictures!😊
