Two hundred thousand Dutch eels arrive by air at Vienna's Schwechat airport. They have come?
Two hundred thousand Dutch eels arrive by air at Vienna's Schwechat airport. They have come from Holland, where the best eels in the world are produced.
After having taken great care of the precious freight, officials take the eels to lake Neusiedl, not far from the Hungarian border, where they should feel quite at home. There they will breed to supply the Austrian fish markets with an abundance of this delicacy.
At first the eels approach to their new watery home is a little tentative, but after a few preliminary investigations they slip easily and silently into the water and disappear.
