Wrapping up the year 2016

It is December again, the end of the year, time of celebrations, traditions and the beginning of winter. It is a good moment to count your fortunes, check if you have offended the Karma, and how much more, or less, kilos there are on the waistline.

What happened in October

November is usually the depressingly boring month, when the autumn really sets in, turning everything into grey, wet and cold misery.
