This melody is the seventy-first destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at St. Julian's Paceville district.

The main character in this piece is a 33-year old otorhinolaryngologist. This individual was coming off a rough year in which many clients the individual assisted ended up having numerous irreversible conditions that caused the individual to seek asylum. Therefore, the main character decided to take a 49-day vacation and visit an exciting place to fulfill a bucket list dream, besides visiting Dragonara Point and the Millenium Chapel. That meant that the main character underwent a monetary adventure to enroll at the famous Battle of Malta Poker Tournament. Despite having played poker four times during his penultimate year of studies, the individual finished ninth out of 625 people. Most importantly, the main character fulfilled his first confession inside St. Petrus and St. Paulus Church.

The main character even found time to visit the Gianni Bencini Ground to watch a Maltese Cup Round of 32 match. Unfortunately, the lopsided match had the main character emit angry yawns, much to the chagrin of the stadium crowd and especially for the video crew who recorded the individual's incessant yawning. Needing to escape the anxious crowd, the main character sought another suitable place to continue the vacation.

The main character decided to power walk alone and eventually arrived at the Paceville district, which had been bustling for 64 hours. There, the main character noticed a flaxen-haired individual who was a struggling first-year medical student. At first sight, both individuals gazed at each other eyes and their hands, with both noticing the latter's effective trait of being ambidextrous. The two people then shared coffee a night nearby, imbibing in espressos while reminiscing about their spiritual awakenings at the Manwel Dimech Bridge.

This piece has a format of 4AABCADDAA. Alexander Glazunov's "Prelude and Fugue in D Minor" and the Spanish Dance from "Raimonda" were the basis for this piece.

This melody is the seventy-second destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Ouagadougou’s Dapoya district.

The main character in this piece is a 30-year-old religious activist and lay minister. This individual was a pragmatist when it came to religious matters, most blending the traditional and the modern ways. Until months ago, the character seldom traveled outside his native country and sought a new challenge. To do so, the main character threw a pristine pencil on a paper map, and the pencil landed on Ouagadougou.

So, the main character arrived at Ouagadougou Aiport donning blazing pink shorts and a lukewarm burgundy polo shirt. Along the way, the individual also carried four suitcases that contained clean water, delicacies, and other perishable items that would be given as donations along with stops at both the Ouagadougou Grand Mosque and the Cathedral of Ouagadougou. The donations were just the beginning, and amazingly the main character notices that a random miracle had the suitcases quadruple. In so doing, the amount of water and food would be enough to feed at least half the stadium. That miracle encouraged the individual to visit the Stade du 4 Août 1983, where the stadium was hosting an African Nations Championship qualifying match. The water and the food proved sustainable as the entire stadium received the goods.

Still, the main character, while on a power stride, was still feeling empty. That was until arriving at the city’s Dapoya district, where two individuals in glowing black and white attire stood just inside the district. The experience struck the main character – these two people were decedents related to both a respectable clerk and a charity founder, and they were awaiting the main character to begin a 4-year stint at helping women who had been victims of human trafficking. The main character realized this was the challenge that finally came all this time, and the main character saw hope and compassion in these women’s eyes. So, the main character wasted no time and got started, while enjoying locally brewed coffee from a nearby coffee shop.

This piece has a format of 4AABB4CCA4DD. Maurice Kirwin's "African Pas", Clarence Wiley's "Carbarlick Acid" and Bil Aka Kora, a native of Burkina Faso, were the basis for this piece. Furthermore, the following article provided also provides the inspiration for this story (https://theferret.scot/exposed-human-trafficking-sex-industry-burkina-faso/).
