I neither got around to reviewing the second Eurovision semi-finals, nor to discussing the Eurovision Finals – badAdam.
I have a good excuse: I was exhausted and any free time I had this weekend, I was asleep. Friday’s super early alarm (4:30, after 5 hours of sleep) in combination with a late evening (home past [...]
Last Thursday was IDAHO – The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
It was also the day that my American Friend arrived, and so I gave him a walking tour of Berlin, covering all the most important spots — and as we walked past the American Embassy, we spotted the Rainbow-Pride Flag Toga [...]

A week or so ago I got my first 2€ coin that celebrates 10 years of the Euro.
ECB's info on this special coin.
