Here we are in the very beautiful Augarten in Vienna, second district. I come here very often as I life very close, to take a rest, read and a little sunbath. I have been playing here already when I was a child, as far as it was possible, because there were these strange park guards, mostly invalids of the First World War and they had to take care that nobody would walk or play on the meadows and so on. I remember that I always wanted to walk around here freely as a child but never could do it because of them, however, we made fun with them. This has changed of course, it is much better today.
I have passed all my 80 years in this district. I like that there are not many people here which makes this place really calm, no disco sounds or great events which would destroy the calmness. That would not fit to this park.
