Vienna: Bush in Town

Posted on June 21, 2006



While my Latvian acquaintance* was late half an hour in the morning yesterday due to three bomb mocks in Vienna and on the Airport highway I just had to wait ages for my streetcar at night.

Ms. retailtherapista and I hung out on the Adria Wien beach at the Donaukanal and watched police buzzing around and closing the streets from our sun chairs.

Donaukanal. (novala)

Bridge. (novala)

One of many questions that comes up is: One guy comes to Vienna and paralyses 1.6 mio people because HE is the one being protected. But what about those 1.6 mio people? Aren’t we in danger because HE is here? Why isn’t it possible to hold meetings like that somewhere where it’s less dangerous for the majority?

On the same subject: 

Mr. Bush comes and Vienna collapses. Check the website of the Austrian Automobile Association ÖAMTC – they show you which streets are blocked.
