In memory of the elephants killed in Botswana

Almost no words today and so sorry for the very sad aspect of this post.

It leaves me speechless and heartbroken to learn of the poaching in Botswana. I would just like to pay my heartfelt tribute to the rangers and anti-poaching units who try their very best everyday and of course to the majestic animals. May they stay safe!

Afro-Pfingsten Festival

The 28th edition of Afro-Pfingsten closed yesterday and what a colourful, peaceful, and multicultural spectacle it was, once more. Afro-Pfingsten is a music festival (actually much more than that) in Winterthur/Switzerland and takes place during the week up to and over the weekend of Pentecost. The latter means Pfingsten in German, hence the name Afro-Pfingsten. It is a week full of music, laughter, drums, humans from every walk of life, food from all over the world, and a mixture of languages, cultures, looks and styles that you feel like travelling the world by visiting just one city in a small country.

There is a buzzing market from Thursday through to Saturday, workshops, free concerts on two stages in the picturesque old town of Winterthur, buskers to stop an listen to, a film festival showing relevant movies, and even more concerts in the evenings.

This festival is best when listened to, that is why you will have several options in this post to indulge your ears and souls into a little bit of what was going on here. Let’s start with the drums with a view of some of the old town houses :0): Read more

African Hair Style

As you may know, I am a keen traveller and actually have itchy feet in this very moment. But I am lucky to have the world or at least parts of it in my classroom. So I learn bits and pieces of other languages, cultures, dos and don’ts while working.

What do you learn at work?

The first word I normally want to learn from people with different mother tongues than me is thank you followed by hello. I remember many moments when I opened doors and hearts by just simply saying one of these words in their language. I also still see the smiling faces, mine included. The latter I rather feel than see, though ;-). Read more
