CANDLES… Not numbers, Set on my cake instead… CANDLES make me happy While burning flames Create a dance […]

A language – what is that?

Why Dutch is just weird German and everybody in the Balkan speaks five languages. But really it is about language and how, and if, it is different from a dialect. That‘s easy, isn‘t it?
