In front of a house there is a small flowerbed which I pass by almost every day. It is the flowerbed in this picture and it was a little joy to look at those plants. Somehow those small fruits got a little bigger each day and I thought they might be Strawberries. Yesterday when I passed by and was looking forward in joy to its growth. When I saw it however I felt some confusion. The flowers and fruits were gone! There may be some reasons but to me it is so sad that I cannot see them anymore. Just like the flowerbed which does not belong to me, such things happen and there is just nothing we can do about them.
I am so happy, that restaurants and cafés are open again in Vienna. To me it feels as though the city of Vienna has recovered from an injury. After some illness when one finally goes outside, everything looks fresh. And one realizes again that one has recovered with a grateful feeling in the heart. I think everyone has some kind of such an experience. I feel that the city of Vienna had suffered together with its inhabitants. I wish for a continued recovery.
That was a long time. Finally Vienna emerges from lockdown. Cafés, restaurants, hotels, etc. are finally allowed to open their doors to the public. There are still measures taken to allow guests to enter such as Covid test result, proof of vaccination and proof of past infection. There is a limited number of guests per square meter and per table. I feel that everyone is relieved and I yam happy as well. Unfortunately today’s weather was not very good but I felt that rain was refreshing. Finally Austria is categorized as a safe country (Category A).
In Vienna nature is in full bloom and a beautiful season has arrived. Recently after a long lockdown period finally shops opened up again. After May 19th other locations such as restaurants will open again. Finally Vienna will come closer to some normailty.
