A little Cuban vacation
Iris Garofalo grew up in a small town in Cuba. She accepted her uncle's invitation to visit him in Berlin in 1999, and has been here ever since. Eric Garofalo was born in the same town as his wife. They lived only 50 meters apart, but never ran into each other. He studied agriculture and moved to Italy, where he met his wife, who was vacationing there. They moved in together in Berlin in 2008.
