Depends on the weather, the prices and the programs. I in n recent years often visited the Afro-Pfingsten

Re: Afro-Pfingsten Festival in Winterthur

Was there yesterday for a while.

We wandered round, soaked up the atmosphere, listened to music at various spots, ate some delish African food, had some drinks and just generally had a good time.

The main highlight for me was seeing a little girl (around 9 months to a year) clapping her tiny hands perfectly in time to the music at one place we stopped at and really enjoying the rhythms. It was a sheer delight watching her.

That is quite normal in Africa and Southamerica...

the Swiss girls don't manage to do it even when well on their 30s ( or in some cases never )
