secrets and lies, that's how we grew up

Day 21 - Another moment

It was Kevin's last evening in Vienna and we were about to go to a family dinner. We bought cake in the poshest confectionery and then walked to the underground station. We were right in the middle of Vienna, tourists everywhere, posh shops and polished facades, horse carriages, pedestrian zones, fountains, postcard settings. And I thought it was so strange that our last walk together, the last thing we did together was here, that the year we had spent together in Vienna came to an end here, in this gleaming, unreal part of town, so beautiful and so completely out of touch with reality, an illusion. Strange, and yet... so typical, so symbolic.
