a great party on the streets

take a look at the decorations in Vienna, then at the crowd celebrating the New Year. the fireworks you have already seen - you should know that they start really early, maybe earlier as 9 PM, and last till past midnight...
we really enjoy partying on the streets of Vienna, together with thousands of other people.
what I don't like is the crackers going boom in my ears - I get scared. hubby has no related issues though :).
below you can see the crackers-zone next to Stephansdom/Haashaus. just stay back and enjoy the boom. oh, and watch your camera!
Happy New Year! let the champaingne flow! or the prosecco...
at 2 AM nevertheless the party is over, the lights are off, and the cleaning services will come in force, so one hour later Vienna is clean as a water lily.
and what do you guess, it started snowing like in a fairy tale right when the party stopped...
