It is that time of the year again… you hear drums, your body and especially your hips move with the rhythm, you smell fire, fish, and sunscreen, you see more colourfully dressed people than usual (thank goodness!), and you see smiles and content faces everywhere.
It is when Africa takes centre stage in a Swiss city.
It is Afro-Pfingsten Festival in Winterthur.
She stole my heart. Do you see the elderly lady looking out the window in the top middle image? I dared to take a picture without asking her as she had this big contagious smile in her face moving her body with the rhythm of Ma belle chérie we were all listening to (on stage in the photo to the right of her).
Let’s do it like her: Keep smiling and dancing forever!
Are you in the mood now to listen to some African rhythms? Then watch the videos in my other Afro-Pfingsten post.
Warm greetings and have a wonderful (long) weekend,
