Photo of the day: HAPPY NEW YEAR!


Fremder, L’Etranger, Stranger!
Glücklich zu sehen, Je suis enchanté,
Happy to see you,
Bleibe, reste, stay.
Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome!
Im 2013, Au 2013, To 2013!
Meine Damen und Herren-
Mes dames et Messieurs-
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Comment ça va? Do you feel good?
Ich bin euer Conférencier! I am your host! Und sage.
Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome!
Leave your troubles outside.
So life is disappointing, forget it!
In New York life is beautiful.
Just get yourself a saw, a bow,
and a sparkly top hat and voilà,
you have a New Year’s party!
