It’s almost Carnival! Will you be celebrating? Where I grew up, Carnival was important.

Here and today, Carnival is almost […]

On their first day of school, children get these cone-shaped „bags“ from their parents, filled with sweets and small presents. Here’s a picture of me on my first day of school: Today we will make some small ones that could be a […]
