Description

At the corner. This is a great European spot. You come up past St. Stephens, on Rotenturmstrasse, and you can get great books just off Rotenturmstrasse on Wollzeite at Wawowa books, or coffee and amazing treats at the corner of the next street, Lichtensteig at Zanoni and Zanoni, or turn right and go to Figlmüller for amazing Schnitzel on Backerstrsse. The schnitzel is literally bigger than your plate - you should get the small, half portion, even if the waiter jokes with you that you are a child, and then you go one more block to Fleischmarkt.

And there is a full size spider man, on the west side, clinging to the wall above the comics shop. And this tiny little street curves ahead of you, Rabensteigasse, and to the left is a movie theatre, Cine Center with movies like 'Kapitalismus cheri' and 'die papstin antichrist' and 'plastic planet das weisse band' and things which drive me back
to my German texts.

Striving for meaning in the words, and meaning from the architecture and the layouts of the streets and the patterns of people.

But the key is to head away from Grabon and the gaudyness of Karntner Strasse, and up, and then maybe turn left on Feleischmarkt and right, and around to St. Ruperts, Ruperechskirche, the oldest church in Vienna, and it looks a bit like a garden shed when compared with Stephansdom, but there is a charm to it.

And maybe drop down the stairs, towards the new River Boat dock which is, itself, architected to look like a river boat, and across the bridge and down to the path along the donaukanal, and stroll for miles. literally miles with a legal grafitti wall on your side. And the cold swift Donaukanal to the other side.

That is vienna.

    Figlmüller is the Schnitzel place, not Fibermullr. But you're right about the Schnitzel and its quality! And to avoid the exposure differentials between images, you need to turn that automatic exposure off and make sure the ISO is also a constant value...just sayin', you know? :-)
