It’s become a Welcome-to-Austria tradition: Christianis invite for coffee,tea and delicious cakes into their beautiful Viennese Home. Yesterday the ambassador gives the story-teller from his rich professional career.

In a certain country the Ambassador was asked by a telephone operator to give his profession for a cetain form. “What are you working? Your profession, please”the operator asks – “Ambassador of Austria”, Alexander replies – “Australia you say?” – “No from AUSTRIA!” – “Can you spell it, please” – “A-U-S-T-R-I-A, please” – “Thank you. That’s fine. Now, that means, you are not working at all, is it?”
