140515 Ballon D’Essai

for 140515Oh my! Didn’t it ever rain today!  It’s a bank holiday here and so I went on an adventure with Rudi and Markus:  First stop, die Werkbundsiedlung; second stop, die Wotrubakirche and third and further stops, a couple of heurigen – well, that was the plan but on account of the ferocious weather, our first stop was the only place in the area that was open, namely a pizzeria.  By the time we’d dried out, had coffee, had pizza and worked out when the next bus was, the adventure was somewhat shortened – not that this spoilt it in any way.  I’m not sure, now that I’ve done some research, that the Siedlung is truly a ballon d’essai, but it was jolly interesting.

Day #134 of the second 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
