This week we’re like buses – a long wait, and then 2 come at once with dinner at Alicia’s next Tuesday and then Kerrie and Felix’s on Saturday.
Double whammy! After the saturations and stimulations of of Chinese New Year and Fat Tuesday, it feels right to just have more
My dear friend Jeremy Duns – celebrated-novelist, cold-war researcher, sock-puppet-slayer & now radio4 presenter – is in town from Stockholm, chasing spooks and stories. We, by chance, are suddenly in mothership MOSCOW! – the perfect chance for meeting the old cold war with new warm conversation.
We shift Eastwards into both the Black and the Red – those seas either side of Turkey, our last week in headline Egypt as we crack just east of the Nile, slowly exiting Europe.
This week we seat on Sat – day 26 of the year, thus longitude 26 – a long stretch all the way from Norway’s promiscuous toe playing footside with Russia, to Port Elisabeth in South Africa – just shy of Lesotho & their own city of ‘East London’.
This week Alison and Kevin and Cactus Master, Spurring host a WARMING FIRE PARTY in an E1 secret garden.
As we wave Adios to summer (what!), come join Alex and Sinead at their flat in Shoreditch for the first Latitudinal Cuisine dinner of the autumn.
A vast and deep thank you for accompanying us on our round-the-world journey.
Your support and attendance were deeply appreciated. It was a huge pleasure hosting so many wonderful people, and we hope you found it a memorable accompaniment to the London Olympics (a lot of its athletes clearly did – visiting us for a well-earned drink at our late-night bar after 4 years hard grind).
This week on Latitude, we take a look at Week One of Global Feast – Wednesday 25th July – Sunday 29th July.
