Viennese Ice dream 2011

by - 7.2.11

It's ice skating season once again...

Every year, the Town Hall grounds has been transformed into an ice skating rink opened for enthusiasts as early as 9am up until the evening...a briliant display of lights (no, I don't think they're wasting energy at all -sarcastic-) is part of the show. (Click here to view 2008's Eistraum and here to know more about the Gothic Townhall.)

We were out last Friday to tour a friend from Japan who came to Vienna to research about the educational system provided by the city for the handicapped. We ended up walking by the town hall and other buildings in the area...I do hope I'll get the time to show all of the shots.

Earlier that day, I was able to see Michael Knight himself....aka  "the Hoff" on his way to an autograph hour with fans. :)

Who would have thought Knight Rider is almost 60? ;)
