Viva America Latina!

Congratulations and thanks to the Anglo Latin American Foundation for bringing us 2015’s “Latin American Fair & Fiesta” at Kensington and Chelsea Town  Hall.  There was  wonderful entertainment, crafts and food for everyone.  And all to raise funds for children.  A true taste of ‘America Latina’.

Here are a few of the stalls.  Apologies to those whose stalls are not photographed here – you all did a great job.

Double click the picture below to open it in a new window. By then zooming in,  the names of every country at the fair can be read. Remarkable.  All the countries of South America were represented, except for Suriname (pop 550,000, Dutch speaking, independent since 1954) and French Guiana (pop 250,000, French speaking, French  ‘department’). Because of their different cultures these two countries are not considered to be part of ‘Latin America’.

And for the information of non-Spanish speakers, ‘Tiendas’ [ First Floor ] = ‘Shops’.
