“Ukulele i ja”

“Ukulele i ja” is the title given to my first article ever written and published, on Vreme magazine from Serbia, sharing some funny stories of my tours! It came out in late November and I’m posting here its original version in English for the readers who have no clue about Serbian language and where Banatsko Novo Selo is.
