with Max Hopp and Nadja Mchantaf

After a wild New Year's Eve celebration, some people feel like Mary Shalley's creature Frankenstein the next morning: freshly put together, eyes still a little glassy and head a kaleidoscope of wild scenes! Hardly any day is better suited for a festive hangover - and a healthy New Year's stroll - than the first day of the year.
