Happy First Birthday, Eli Donellan!

And happy half birthday, Mollie!


The Niels Bohr Archive:

“The family of Niels Bohr has decided to release all documents deposited at the Niels Bohr Archive, either written or dictated by Niels Bohr, pertaining specifically to the meeting between Bohr and Heisenberg in September 1941. There are in all eleven documents. The decision has been made in order to avoid possible misunderstandings regarding the contents of the documents.”

The first week at school is over already. It was quite short because of carnival. My first impression of “my” school is very positive: The teachers are friendly and helpful towards us rookies, and the pupils seem to be okay, too. Also, the school has a famous library that contains about 2000 books and 76 incunables from the 15th to 18th century, which is pretty impressive and very exceptional for a school.

After only three days of school I’m now on carnival vacation, which lasts from today to Tuesday, and it’s great to sleep a little longer in the mornings. Usually, I now have to get up at 5:30 am because it takes more than an hour by train to get to my school, which is not in Bonn, but in a very picturesque little town nearby.
