Today is a public holiday here in Germany. It’s the Tag der Deutschen Einheit, the day celebrating the reunification in 1990. Not that I’ve noticed anyone celebrating so far. I’m sure most people would be happy to celebrate by going to Ikea or somewhere, but those shops ain’t open today. As it is, it’s a perfect day for a) trying to watch the partial eclipse, hoping that the clouds would part for long enough to see it (they didn’t), b) doing a painting of one of the fellows I did pencil drawings of over the weekend (see below), and c) going back to bed and watching some DVDs (which will be happening a few short moments after I click the ‘Publish Post’ button).
