Vida London: Round-up of 2011
It’s been a frantic, diverse, haphazard year, as befits a city like London.
I’ve spoken to a lot of interesting and helpful people throughout the year, many of them working on excellent causes, so I thought I’d take a moment to highlight some posts from 2011. A big thank you to everyone who’s taken the time to talk to me and to read this blog.
In July, I spoke to Francis Carlisle, director of the Latin American Womens’ Rights Service (LAWRS), which does great work giving advice, information and advocacy to hundreds of Latin American women in the capital.
Germán D’Alessandro talked about the Tierra Theatre Company, which specialises in Spanish-language theatre, teaching and workshops. Earlier in the year I interviewed poets Gregorio Fonten and Alfonso Grez about their work and their involvement in Alba Londres magazine.
Martin Morales, meanwhile, is a man dedicated to bringing Peruvian food to London.
Author and travel writer Jason Webster very kindly took the time to answer questions about his new detective series, set in Valencia.
