#1040 – February 29th

ENGLISH If there are only a few special days in the year 2012, today is definitely one of them. Why? Well, of course it is because today is February 29th, a date that does not come every year; but only once in every four years. Yes, because 2012 is a leap year, we have this…

#1039 – Basically Bikeless

ENGLISH Okay, last July, after a really long search, I finally got a (new) bike.
