BICYCLE TOUR: EUROTOUR 2008

FLAVIO BASSI'S ON-BOARD DIARY

DAY 15

DATE: 18:08:2008
START: WIEN
FINISH: WIEN
LENGTH: 0 KM
DIFFICULTY GRADE: 00
Coloured glass.
This morning is dedicated to: washing clothes; buying something like soap, spoon, knife in a rare shop of standard home tools (is it the only one, around here??); and repairing the bike of Matteo (alignment of wheel and of disk brake, and replacement of tyres with a stronger model). That bicycle shop, in a court of a old palace, is efficient: the bike becomes new.

In the afternoon I walk by myself, dedicating all the time to photography. The main subject which attracts my view is the colour of the glass-walls, so large and so vivacious, in the shopping road between hotel and downtown. I shoot tens of pictures all with different dominating colors.
Vienna is here a contemporary building which contains old culture inside; and it forgets the grey of the weather illuminating vivid colors everywhere.

In the evening, time for some nice shots in the dark, and then CRASH! the camera flies down on the ground and blocks its working. My dear old camera!!
