Nothing you see
seems to fit in with the rest.
I’d rather not be noticed

Today is the official first day for first graders in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
A big event in the life of young children, in Germany, this day is “sweetened” by the Schultüte-
the cone shaped present- filled with small school utensils and sweets.
