Part one

Mattias is awaken by the sun (that means about 11 AM in the winter and about 2 AM come summer)
Breakfast with the lion and the cubs is usually a jolly affair.
Mattias tries not to get lost amongst the trees while walking the dog
Mattias then strolls downtown to the library to get some inspiration for his daily art
