I was hoping to post a picture of a shiny new residence permit, but Austrian work hours and I do not agree. I arrived at the building where I was supposed to pick up my permit at 3:40pm, 10 minutes after it closed. Really, Austria? Why are your citizens going home at 3:30?! Haven’t they heard of 9-5 business hours?! Because of these ridiculous hours, I am still considered a tourist. A tourist with a job, bank account and apartment, but a tourist all the same.
So instead I’m posting a picture from my walk -30 minutes, each way, in the rain…at least the picture is nice.
