Austria played against Serbia (soccer) today at the Ernst-Happel Stadium. We lost 1:3. :( It was the qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2010. Seems like it takes place without Austria. Once again. :-(

Serbian Three finger salute (tri prsta)

A lot of Serbians made a three-finger salute this evening and I wondered what it means. Check out the Wikipedia-article about the “tri prsta” if you want to know the meaning.

Merci Chérie …

… for visiting my blog! ;-)

merci

Merci Chérie is one of the most famous songs of Udo Jürgens. If you are an Austrian and you didn’t know that: Shame on you!

Stockholm Fine Festival Beer

I really like the supermarket at our local IKEA. It’s nice to buy swedish food here in Austria. :-) They even have reindeer ham. I always think of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer when buying 200g of it. I think I can even hear Jingle Bells when eating the ham. Well, at least after several cans of Stockholm Fine Festival Beer I can for sure. ;-)

Austria vs Germany

As I told you before: It’s soccer time here in Austria. It’s the Euro 2008. Today Austria played against Germany. And we lost again (0:1). Damn it! :-( Whatever, life goes on. The qualification for the World Soccer Cup starts in a few weeks and Austria will definitely qualify for the tournament. Maybe we’ll be world champions in two years … :mrgreen:

My sweetheart, me, myself and I went to the Rathausplatz in the center of Vienna. There’s a special soccer-fanzone. Everyone there was painted and dressed in the colors of either Austria or Germany.

Even the tourists:

This is Sonia, a really nice girl from Spain (as she told me later) who we painted in the colors of Austria. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your team on Sunday when they are playing against Italy. Viva l’España! :-)
