I really don’t want to ruin all your illusions about this idyllic city of Mozartkugeln and the Trapp family, but yes, she is real. I personally have no aversions against rats, I’ve grown to love them during the two years we shared home, but she definitely raised some excitement among the poor tourists.

Evening sky on my way home after working thirteen hours. The problem with me is that I’m never a tourist. I never visit cities, I’m always living in them. And I always have a lot of other things to do (like working thirteen hours, haha), so no time remains for sightseeing. But this weekend I have free, so, Salzburg, I’m coming!

A one-day trip to Wien to get my diploma nostrificated. I didn’t succeed, needless to say. (Long complaint about translating bureaus don’t keeping deadlines, ministries changing their requirements weekly without updating their homepage, agencies giving false information and bureaucracy generally. Tons of f-words.) If my misfortune plans to continue in the way it did during the last few months, I will end up believing that bad karma actually does exist.

I really tried my best to enjoy the day despite of the ice-cold rain and the fact that, after my visit in the ministry, I was in the mood for blood flowing down the streets; but after a few hours spent with accomplishing obligatory tourist stuff* in wet socks and without an umbrella, the only thing that had the power to cheer me up, was a hot, 1-euro coffee in McDonald’s. Even if I had to share my table with seven twelve-years-old Austrian boys.**

* like photographing horses, staring at Stephansdom and wandering in the rain without any purpose

** my strong opinion is that men win a lot with ageing
