Speaking this month we have:
David Redford – Glimpses of the Nile – and echoes of the great explorers.
Images and stories from a number of short visits to East and Central Africa to illustrate the enormity and history of the River Nile, and hopefully to pass on some of its fascination to travellers.
Russell Maddicks – Magical Mexico City
Built on the ruins of the ancient Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, Mexico City has mushroomed into the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world. A melting pot of all that makes Mexico great, and with more museums and cultural institutions than any other city in the world apart from London, it can be hard for first-time visitors to negotiate this sprawling behemoth. Travel writer Russell Maddicks, author of the Culture Smart! Guide to Mexico, brings you his top tips for enjoying this magical city like a local, taking in the history, art, music, food and people that make it so memorable and unique.
