The first time I drove to Vienna, a few years back now, I was struck by what a friendly city it was.
Seriously, how many cities in the world offer free, indoor parking?
A few hours and 30€ poorer, it occured to me that "free" has more than one meaning. "Available" being one of them.
We could chalk this up to cultural disonance, but that would be a stretch, wouldn't it?
