Review : Latin American Gastronomic Fair in London

In October ... London had an opportunity to experience and taste the flavours of Latin America, charities from the South american countries, gather together under one roof, to have a taste of the exotic dishes, desserts, drinks from Latin America.

In two roms, one for crafts and music, and the other for food, drinks and also music.

The Bolivian Food Stand , with delicious food !!

Bolivia, took part with the charity " Friends of Bolivia " having the food stall and also the crafts stall. Las Saltenas from the Friends of Bolivia Stand, proved to be popular, and soon were sold out, as well as having the popular bolivian beer : Pacena. and many different other dishes.

As well as that We ( my friend Angela and myself Lindsey from "Bolivian Heritage" group) took part. With our costumes we were helping the craft and food stall, also we were letting the other countries' stands and all the other people know about the bolivian food, as we walked along the place. Also we were quite lucky enough to be able to perform a dance from Bolivia called : Morenada. in front of such an amazing and welcoming crowd, which was enjoying all the other performances and having a great time ! 

The place was packed with loads of people, who clearly enjoyed the food, the music, and the atmosphere was lovely. For us another oportunity to show and share our culture through dance and chatting to people, they clearly wanted to take a little memory with them by taking pictures with us.

It was a very nice event at a very nice venue, and now we are really looking forward to next years' event , and hope that you too can come next year and enjoy the magic from Latin American under one roof, and dont forget to visit the Bolivian Stand, see you next year ! :)
