Albanian Party in the “Alte Schachtel”

I felt a bit like on holiday in Albania, when I went to the discotheque “Alte Schachtel” in Constance on the weekend. The entire discotheque was crowded by Albanian-born young people from Germany and Switzerland. The loud speakers played Albanian rap and hip-hop music, and the mood was exuberant and peaceful. What is rather uncommon in German discotheques: the dancers took themselves by the hands and danced in wide circles. Not infrequently the typical red cloths were to be seen. They are called Mindila, a handkerchief worn in Turkey, Albania, Kosova, and allover the Balkans by brides and other women at weddings and other parties.
