  • 11 February 2014 - Bolivian Story: Gabriela Rebeca Santa Cruz

    We met Rebeca the same night as Pablo, at Red Monkey, the only vegan vegetarian restaurant in La Paz. Rebeca was behind the bar mixing unusual cocktails that combine typically Bolivian ingredients like huacataya and locoto with fresh juices and of course, alcohol. When I turned up at Red Monkey for my first day volunteering in the kitchen Rebeca showed me around their food production garden, which is her baby and love. As we talked it became clear to me that she was feeling overwhelmed as the only person working in the garden, so I suggested I come one day a week to help out.

    Dear readers,

    To kick off the new year, we’d like to warmly thank you for your continuous reading and support throughout 2011…   Indeed, Making Sense of Things is growing, and was viewed more than 53,000 times in 2011! The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people, so if it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 20 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.


    Here are some more crunchy numbers for you:

    • Most visitors came from Australia. The United States & The United Kingdom were not far behind.
    • We also had visitors from New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Israel/Palestine, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Colombia, Chile, South Africa, Kenya, Egypt, Morocco, Zambia, among others… We’d love to visit you! 🙂

  • 11 July 2011 - Update your playlist thanks to the Worldwide Festival…

    I have to admit, after five days dancing at the sixth Worldwide Festival, I struggle writing this post… Yet, I’m putting the effort as I do think you should consider attending the next one, either in Singapore or Sète (South of France – see the pic). The Worldwide Festival is organised by the über famous DJ Gilles Peterson and the styles of music are as eclectic as the name of the festival suggests. We’ve seen and heard artists from the UK, France, US, but also from the Congo, Japan, Iceland, Germany, Singapore, Kenya… etc with artists such as LeFtO, Simbad, Raphael Saadiq, Konono Number One, Gilles Peterson, Brandt Brauer Frick, Flying Lotus, Cut Chemist, DJ Harvey, Awesome Tapes From Africa, Ghostpoet, etc… As for the styles, there really was a bit of everything: house, electronic, hip-hop, dubstep, acid-jazz, trip-hop, blues, drum and bass, and even (sadly) a bit of pop.… Read the rest
