Aron Can in Spain

I interviewed Aron Can on the backstage of Secret Solstice 2018 after his performance. He was polite, but tired. In the middle of the conversation his friend Gisli Pálmi (the craziest rapper in Iceland) jumped out to his neck and embraced him for 3 minutes

I asked him a few questions about Spain

He has been only in Lloret de Mar (Costa Brava, Catalunya) and he loves it. His favorite meal was not the Spanish ham, Spanish omelette or paella; it was the pizza that one of the restaurants of the area made
