The first and only time I was in Vienna, I was taking a rather random walk and I turned up a street. I walked by a building with a pair of caryatids framing the entrance. "I've been here before," I thought. Which was absurd, because obviously I'd never been there.
What was strange was that my very vivid memory was appearing in my mind in black and white.
I looked across the street and saw an equestrian statue. "This is getting REALLY strange. It looks SO familiar. I'm SURE I've been here. But I never have. How can this be?"
Still the memories were black and white.
It wasn't till I got back to my hotel, hours later, that I realized I'd walked by the exterior of Harry Lime's apartment building.

But it was all filmed on location in Wales. Beautiful sewers, Cardiff.
I had meant to take the sewers part of the Third Man Tour when in Vienna last year but couldn't fit it in. And btw: thank you to Rich for his Vienna recommendations. My dinner at Mraz und Sohn was my favorite meal of 2018 (other than the orange wines ).
