so, this is perhaps the first time ever that I’ve read „Austria“ in the headline of a Foreign Policy Article. Recently, it has only been mentioned whenever Vienna was the venue for diplomatic conferences (Iran, Syria). And then it’s about eating. Austrians eat more than Americans – and everyone else in the world – but Americans are still fatter, that’s what the article is about. Yessir, great times to be an Austrian. Not only is the football team currently ranked #10 in the world (the highest rank ever) „we“ are also world champs in yearly consumption of food. Now that’s something to talk about! Makes one wonder what happened to the good old days of active cold war diplomacy though.
