11/7 (Day 6): Ciudad Sonica at Mayaguez, PR.
We performed at a festival in Mayaguez, which is 2 hour drive from San Juan. This is the preparation process before the “performance”. The process of putting the floor/platform together is a performance on its own as well.
It rained for few hours in the afternoon, and I ended up dancing in the rain. Something always happens while you are waiting.

Cricklewood, in North West London, is a community with no public space: no town hall, no library, no square, not even a single bench.
