Welcome to Remedios, Cuba – a small Concert at a tiny Square

We trudged through the streets of sleepy Remedios*, Cuba, our rucksacks feeling heavier under the midday sun.

It was loud, it was colorful, many different smells run through our noses. It was truly a wow-experience to get to know Marrakesh.
