It was not my intention, but somehow I traced the three monotheistic religions, beginning with a sad part of Austria´s history.
Tourists waiting in front of the Anker Uhr for the day´s highlight: At you can see another escorted by a suitable . The highlight is at . At this time you see a of famous characters from history.
St. Georg´s Greek Orthodox church at Griechengasse reminds me a bit of a mosque, perhaps because it was built for the Ottomans.
And finally, this Church reminds me of Italy, because of the big place in front of it. There was a choir singing inside the moment I took the photograph. I liked to hear the silent voices coming from within.

Last week I've been to the bookstore here in Vienna to buy the autobiography of Malcolm X. I was astonished to hear that they didn't have it and that it is not available in German. So I ordered an English copy. Actually I am reading it at the moment and more and more admiring this man. It is unbelievable how black people suffered and still do. Debt is modern slavery he says and to me this is true. I recommend this book to everyone. A shame that there are no more German copies available. To me this is a classic, like Anne Frank's Diary.

My private little garden in the city consists of a few flower boxes in my windows. There is so much joy in watching the plants grow.

"You can't be genuinely kind to others if you are not kind to yourself... When we don't feel threatened - by our own judgmental tendencies - we'll automatically become nicer." Moutasem Al-Hameedy

He was a journalist, and like most journalists he invented a lot of stories. In the end he himself believed they were true.

It´s a weird world we live in. Some lives matter more than others. When 400, now 900, refugees die in the Mediterranean it´s not really interesting for the media. If a luxury liner would have drowned the media would report it way differently.

Is this correct? Doesn't matter! At least I hope you understand my English.

There is a place nearby where old people use to sit and chat (without computers). I took this picture last summer on a Saturday, just before leaving for the flea market. There was that holiday feeling in the air I love so much about summer.

Some questions arose after I took this photograph: Why do old men mostly have small dogs? And why do the dogs always look similar to their owners?
