  1. Some years ago I had the chance to visit an exhibition about some manuscripts written and drawn by Leonardo. The manuscript were written right left. You need a mirror to read it. There were some theories about this. Someone said that he was left-handed and he didn´t like to ink-stain the paper. Others said that was a method to avoid spying. Really nobody knows why he wrote in that way. And I never have seen drawings like those. Sometimes I wonder what would be doing Leonardo Da Vinci if he were alive today. That is a big question...
