"Smiley walker" on a street sign. Photo taken near the Museumquartiers in Vienna, Austria.

When my wife and I visited Vienna about a year and a half ago, we had almost as much fun reading the street signs, advertisements, and graffiti as we did visiting museums, churches, and parks. In fact, this blog was born in Vienna, thanks to a piece of smiley graffiti my wife spotted.

This is just a plain street sign showing a stick-figure pedestrian making his way to the Museumsquatier, where we ourselves were headed this same day. But some mischievous Viennese decided to cheer things up with a sticker, and now this pedestrian is a happy fellow indeed!
