Today has been Flo's birthday. Instead of going to the countryside as planned, our rented car went on strike and we had to go for the non-existing plan B. Since we were near the train station, we decided spontaneously to hop on a train to Leipzig and there we were, spending the afternoon with coffee and Syrian food and visting an interesting exhibition about the East-German comic zine »Mosaik«. So we made the best out of it.

The goose on Flo's Birthdaycard in the second picture was made by one of my favourite German illustrators for his famous Kinderzimmerkalender - Wolf Erlbruch.

And I loved the reading woman on the hoarding. It is a drawing of a first-grader after an original painting by Gustav Adolph Hennig (1828), which hangs in the museum in Leipzig. Take a look at the original here.
