These days the lesson was about WIEN, hence the name of the post: Viennese Blood. It is not Strauss that I had in mind when I wrote it, but what I always do when I visit a foreign place, which is to get the feel of the city at the time, to feel its heartbeat. It may only be a glimpse of the true pulse of the city, or it may be a very personal and therefore irrelevant one, but it is a piece of Vienna as it opened up to me during my recent three-day stay. Basically, every time I visit a foreign city, I want to see something new, to befriend the unknown, even if the venue is an old friend of mine. And my latest Viennese ”friends” proved that they were worth getting to know.
