Waiting in Isolation

Outside of St. Stephen’s Cathedral (Stephansdom) in Vienna the carriages wait for tourists. I saw a number of the drivers looking at their cellphones like this man. It occurred to me that in other times the men would probably gather together to share stories while they waited. There might have even be laughter or shouting as they shared the trials and tribulations of their jobs.

In our new society of isolation each man is alone with their virtual self and waiting for the world around them to deliver a fare. Forced isolation rather the sharing brotherhood with their fellow horsemen.

Lunch in The Park Vienna

Vienna reminds me a little of Paris. The Architecture, streets and even the underground are similar. In both cities it is also popular for workers to take their lunches in the many city parks weather permitting.

This young lady was enjoying a quiet moment on the south side of Karlsplatz in Vienna, Austria.

Karlsplatz Wien

We stayed at the Hotel Bristol in Wien (Vienna) which is literally steps away from the Karlsplatz Metro Station. On a rainy day we ducked into the station to avoid the rain. There is a shopping mall and cafes underground where we had breakfast, bought a hat and strolled under the street to emerge in Karlsplatz park.

The rain had stopped and the view was beautiful as we strolled through Vienna.

Karlskirche Wien

Karlskirche (St Charles)) in Wien (Vienna) in my opinion is one of the beautiful churches in the world. We were fortunate enough to see a string ensemble perform a concert inside this magnificent structure but that will be the topic of a future post.

This beautiful baroque church is located on the south side of Karlsplatz in Vienna, Austria. Widely considered the most outstanding baroque church in Austria. It is dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo, a great Austrian reformer of the sixteenth century.
