Markt der Kontinente

Time for multi-kulti celebration in Dahlem: this week-end supporters from all over the world - but mostly from Africa and Latin America - gathered for two days at the Ethnological Museum in Dahlem  presenting and selling colourful and original merchandise. Organized in the German tradition of the much-loved Christmas Fairs, the event gathered kids and parents, museum fans or simply shoppers. The price was of 6 Euro - the entrance price at the museum. Beyond the generous offer of products - not extremely cheap, but including many handmade products - there were also organized workshops for kids - cooking, playing "exotic" instruments -, concerts and movie projections. Today, on the last day, it was plenty of people, out of which almost half were window shopping. A good news probably for the many foundations and individuals raising funds for  various humanitarian causes, most part of them located in Africa.
The offer of food wasn't extraordinary: some fresh drinks and minimum dishes - as sweet potatoes; anyway, the place was extremely busy and not too many free places to stay quietly and eat. Let's say it was exclusively food for thought.

Difficult choice, isn't it?
