One week high speed USA! Sitting in planes, cabs, trains, buses, cars, subways, waiting at airports, immigrations, venues, liqueur stores... And it was all totally worth doing!

Huge thanks to Eilish Cullen, Damion Romero, GX Jupitter-Larsen, Jessica King, AMK, Gerritt Wittmer, Ryan Jencks, Jesse Jackson, Luc Meier, Bob Bellerue, Shelley Hirsch, Phil Julian.

I had a great time in Mexico-City at the El Nicho Aural Festival.
Fantastic food, lovely people, energetic moments and holy mezcal.
I sat next to Michael Nyman at the Brötzmann/Laswell show and I saw a free concert of Paul McCartney together with Lasse Marhaug, Anla Courtis and 300'000 Mexicans at Zocalo square.
Got lost at Sonora witchcraft market and had a blast at the Lucha Libre wrestling event.

Thanks to Eric Namour, Finella Halligan, Rogelio Sosa and the whole team of El Nicho Aural and all involved artists I had the pleasure to hang around with.
