So I'm off to Peru for 3 months to live with a family in the shanty town of Pachacutec. I'm going with a NGO charity called Platform2 who are also supported by Christian Aid. Come say teary bye bye's while I drink cheap umbrella decorated cocktails and dance erratically (ha , was almost erotic according to spell checker) to old school garage. Can you dance erotically to old school garage? If so my new career may be an exotic garage dancer. Shut up Jess...
This Friday at he cheesy-chic Anatolia, around 9pm till whenever my feet hurt and I insist on leaving in order to buy chips.

I was invited along to a spoken word event at Westminster Uni by my new friend and fellow Platform2 volunteer, Zi. Bit sceptical about the whole spoken broken poetry thing but I was completely blown away with the whole thing. Particularly Holie McNish, who was accompanied by her partner and their baby girl both sat in the audience. Please check out her website and donate generously to download her album PUSH KICK, all based on pregnancy and motherhood. Funny, moving, harrowing and spoken with such strength.
