these particular paper towels were in the ladies' room at the neue galerie that is nearest to cafe fledermaus. i suspect that every face which has been anywhere near cafe fledermaus (or the galerie's other restaurant, cafe sabarsky) wears a similar grin. i know i was definitely sporting one on sunday, having eaten the most divine wild mushroom spaetzle you can possibly imagine, followed by a schwarzwalder kirschtorte* that might well have restored even nietzsche's faith in a higher power**, all washed down with deliciously fruity mango-ginger iced tea!
alas, the only problem with an absolutely AMAZING vacation is that no matter how wonderful one's real life is... (and being the lucky so-and-so i am, mine is gooooooooood!) ...it's hard not to feel very slightly aggrieved to re-enter a land where beds & bathrooms are not magically made up whilst one spends the the day wafting quite deliriously from museum to cafe to gift-shop! but hey, as "problems" go...i'll take it, gladly!!! ♥
