Twenty-four years ago my friend Ria and I parted when she returned home to Slovakia after one year in the US.  We always knew we’d see each other, but as the song goes..”don’t know where, don’t know when.”

Well, it was today, and it was at Meinl cafe right in the old town of Vienna.  We talked, drank coffee, reminisced, shared photos, talked about our families, and continued talking!  We could barely stop.

We moved the party to Naschmarkt for browsing, discovering new and unusual fruits and spices. Take a look:

I bought some kornblumenblätter.

(Come have a salad at my house and you’ll find them splashed on your greens!)

Lunch was a festival of grilled meats, Turkish style.

Talked through lunch, talked while walking, talked while we talked!

And then it happened :  it was time to part.  Ugh.  Not ready😕.

But “We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when!!”
