Bicycle Day Celebrations

In these days we'll  be several celebrations for the 75th anniversary of  Bicycle day and the discovery of LSD around the world.
In Basel (Switzerland) the birthplace of Albert Hofmann and LSD, they celebrate from April 19 to April 22 (LSD 75), in Brunswick (Australia) they gather on Thursday, April 19 (Bicycle Day Australia), and obviously there will be gatherings and parties in San Francisco (USA) and other American locations.........
Thanks once again Doctor Hofmann for your discovery of this powerful, consciousness-expanding and 'spiritual' molecule that changed (and continue to change) the world......

Across the cities of Thailand, Korea and China, potent and illicit preparations such as ya’aba, home-cooked amphetamine pills swallowed or smoked, propel a young generation through the double working shifts of economic boomtime, or burn up the empty hours of unemployment, before igniting the clubs and bars of the urban nightscape..."
