I was delighted to be invited for a second time to attend a reception at the House of Lords in the last week of January. The evening was organised by LATA (the Latin American Travel Association) whose charitable branch – the LATA Foundation has supported both the Alalay medical centre and now, the quail farm project.
It was a fantastic event with the opportunity to speak with a great number of interesting people, including representatives from the Bolivian Embassy, alongside members of the press and travel industries.
Invited guests included Michael Palin; Baroness Hooper, Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary British-Latin America Group; the Rt Hon Hugo Swire MP, Minister of State at the Foreign Office; and archaeologist Dr Jago Cooper, presenter of the BBC’s Lost Kingdoms of South America series) amongst many others.
