There once was a young girl from Bude
Who went for a swim in the lake
When a man in a punt
stuck an oar up her ear
And said "You can't swim here, it's private".
Smelly Cheese, a legend of the World's Worst Hash responded to this piece of art with the following, amongst others:
There was a young lady from Bude
Who went for a swim in the nude.
She went out in a punt,
And fell out at the front,
And was horribly mauled -- by a duck!

If you're interested in Limericks you can quite easily find other examples out there. I am bringing this up as this post deals with an area that is mostly used by St. Norman, OVH (this time with Rowed Runner) which is the backside of the Bisamberg in Viennas 21st district. Starting off from the carpark near the local cemetery it is immediately into an area rich with vineyards, cobblestone roads, winehouses(Heurigens), beautiful running paths, scenic outlooks...., you name it.

There is not much that Hares can do wrong in these surroundings. Tonights Hares were no exception, with bringing the trail all the way further uphill (thereby avoiding the well known Stammersdorfer Kellergasse with all its Heurigens) until the carpark Senderstrasse was reached. Which is were many a Hashrun was started in the past. From there onwards came the locally wellknown any my favourie part of the run which is downhill the cobblestone street of the Jungenbergstrasse with more spectacular views. One does not need to go to Ibiza. Stay with the World's Worst Hash and be rewarded with copious Down Downs. Towards the end, back to the carpark followed by a regular circle and the On After at the nearby Gasthaus Weinbeisser. (They say halfprice food on Mondays which it isn't). But good food nonetheless.

Look here for an explanation.
Another recent attraction (of many, I confess) was the annual Wiener Beerfest in the centre of town. Beerlovers came sample the products from more than 30 breweries. Very much recommended. Annually in the second half of May.
And now, on to Horitschon for the weekend of our 2000th run.
