London Meetings, Saturday, January 7th, 2017

Speaking this month we have 4 talks and 5 speakers:

    • Rosemary Alexander – Beijing.
    • Adam Lang – 72 hours in Beijing.

      “I have just returned from celebrating Christmas and New Year in Southern Goa and investigating “demonetisation and black money ” in India.

      Taking note of the ancient Nepalese Good Luck – Once a year go somewhere you have never been before- I travelled last November for the first time to China on a short visit to Hong Kong and Beijing interested as a ‘ foreign devil ‘ to find out more about China -Ancient and Modern.”

    • Hilary Clark and Hemant Amin – Andate e ritorno: from London to the Mezzogiorno by train.

      Globetrotters may be independent travellers but they can – perhaps not surprisingly – also be great travelling and dining companions!

      A weekend rendezvous with other Globies in Naples was the highlight of a rail trip which took Hem and Hili from London via Paris to the deep south of Italy, stopping in Turin, Genoa, Sestri Levante, Naples, Salerno, Agropoli and Paestum. Hem finished the trip with a visit to Florence and Siena before returning on the “scenic” route via Milan, Basle and Paris.

    • Sylvia Pullen – The Philippines 2016.

      Sylvia talks about visiting Manila, then travelling on to the island of Palawan, then on to Cebu, Bohol and a couple of other islands before returning to Manila.

  1. By tradition we follow this meeting with a New Year Party post-meeting – everyone is invited to bring food and drink and participate!

London branch meetings are held at The Church of Scotland, Crown Court, behind the Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden the first Saturday of each month, unless there is a UK public holiday that weekend.

Admission costs, £3 for Members and £6.00 Non-members. You do not need to be a member to attend, and we do not sell advanced tickets, please just come on the day, the doors open at 2:15pm and the program starts around 2:30pm with each talk lasting approximately 40 minutes.

There is no London meeting in August, but we start afresh each September.
