Filmfestival Rathausplatz

Kaiserschmarren after a short rain
Every year there is a filmfestival in the park in front of Vienna Townhall (Rathaus). This year from 2012-06-30 to 2012-09-02. Films of operas, operettas and concerts are shown. This year not only classical, but also pop music like Adele and Rolling Stones.

As every year there is are a lot of stands selling food from all over the world: Vienna, Mexico, Cratia, Greece, Turkey, Japan, India ... and more

We, Trixi & I, took indian food. Then we went to Austrian food. She took a Palatschinke. Outside Austria it is known as "Crepe". I took Kaiserschmarren, favourite food of Kaiser Franz Josef II.. Kulinarily ending up Viennese.

Unfortunately it was slightly raining, not unusual in June whe it is very hot. We had 38C (100F) during the day. No Problem, a few minutes waiting under a big tent.

Today they played baroque music - not for me. We went to Cafe Landtmann having a coffee.

WoW (Words of wisdom the world is waiting for ;-)
The sky is the limit? And what about the footprints on the moon?

Need no 100 rumours, no 100 secrets, no 100 true stories, need only one reason for friendship.

Success stories are forgotten too fast, failures remain in memory. It should be opposite. You can try to sweep out the past.

Before you purchase think of the difference between worthiness and price.

Never go to the market to buy food with an empty stomach.

Some songideas are random, improvisation. Quick idea, sudden impact, fast done - and forgotten. And then you ask: what was that?

It's all about arts. Arts is the fuel. A million Euros means nothing when you have a great poem. (hmm, best if you have both)
