A Tinariwen concert to wrap up four days of oral exams

The Spring Semester at the University of Basel ended on Friday, 2 June, so I began my "Vorlesungsfreie Zeit" ("lecture-free time", as they say in German) with a concert that evening. Starting last week, I participated, as I have for years now, in the final English exams of students at the Gymnasium Bäumlihof in Basel. The first session was on Wednesday, 7 June, and the fourth and last one was this morning. I went to the Bird's Eye in Basel from Wednesday to Saturday for their Hammond-organ week – and tonight I'm going to Mühle Hunziken near Bern to hear one of my favorite bands, Tinariwen (from Mali), for the second time.
