RIP, Knut.

On last Saturday, I heard on the radio that Knut, the famous Berlin Polar Bear is dead. He was 4, was born in Berlin Zoo and became very popular and a local symbol, a national star. There was even a song about him and of course they sold lots of goodies after him.

He just died, we don't know why, he fell down in the pool and never rose again. The zoo specialists could not figure out why. And it was of course a topic of discussion in the bars at night, with some crazy theory like he committed suicide since he couldn't stand the fame anymore. That's so bad, I wanted to go and see him in Spring, since visiting zoos in winter isn't that fun I guess, ok he's a polar bear but I don't spend money for a zoo tickets just for one animal.

==Greetings from Berlin==
