So a moth-balled blog and a new chapter in life call for a totally new theme… “Lessons from Mexico”.

Who knew, but a new life in Mexico causes you to ponder a few things…

I’m hoping this  will become an exciting new series of reflections on Mexico, it’s people, politics, culture and effect on my life.

For now, Viva Mexico. Me gusta la vida loca 😉

Part 2 introduces the part-German part-Argentine airline passenger Paola, the grandmother figure of Matilda Alvarez and the beautiful city of Cordoba, its ‘old town’ setting and desert-like climate!

So if you’ll indulge me to take you back to January 2011 I hope I’ll have an interesting tale to tell. I spent 3 weeks travelling across Argentina, travelling solo to fulfil a bit of personal challenge and long-held ambition of mine to begin to travel through South America – albeit sadly only too briefly – meet the people, experience the culture and see the sights. I wasn’t disappointed.

Don’t we all? Since I’ve started living in London, having moved down from the Midlands – where I spent my formative years, childhood and education – I’ve lived both in Islington and in Camden. Both fantastic parts of London to live in, with rich histories. But It’s Camden’s that want to focus on here.
