After two gusty landing attempts on the very gale that is Santa Cruz [a small city where the airport that serves the whole of Madeira Island is built], for a great part of the first day, there we were, opening loudspeaker boxes. We opened about twenty of them, some with wrenches, some with mallets and hammers, and some by kicking them to pieces.
With help from Manuel, Eduardo, Rui and Helena, we examined all the equipment and checked our materials up. As everything was brought down here to PIPINOIR, we already started thinking about how the piece 'Taxonomy' will adapt to the space.
We acquainted ourselves with the café at the corner - Dona Mécia, which is really nice and surprisingly affordable - and already found some people we know on the streets, who promised they would come back at some point.
Now we need to go sleep since it's 5 am already…
