This week...

... had a distinctive South American flavour. I went to see the Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa, who came to Oxford as part of the Oxford literary festival. He gave a beautiful talk on storytelling: "Perhaps the purpose of the storyteller is to keep the soul (of the group)".

All week I dream of being back in Buenos Aires. Walking around Palermo, going in and out of cool shops, visiting the biggest bookshop in South America, Ateneo, and enjoying the best ice cream and croissants in the world.
