If a blog isn't a perfect place for shameless advertising, then where is?
There is a wonderful cafÃ© on Dalry Road, Edinburgh, called The Saltyard. The rumours might be true about Simon and I spending quite a lot of time there... but I promise you, so would anyone who lives a hop, skip and jump away. I've certainly been there enough to get talking about Bangladesh and the lovely staff - without coercion, persuasion or hints, honest - suggested Saltyard host a fundraiser for Bhola's Children.
Tickets are now available for this excellent evening, and everyone is welcome! Details follow... It would be lovely to see anyone who is local enough to drop in on Friday evening.
AN EVENING IN AID OF BHOLA'S CHILDREN
'A feast of curry for your senses'
158 Dalry Road
Friday 7th March
Bangla Music & Photographs
Tickets Â£4.50; Â£1.50 (children); Â£10.00 (family)
The lucky prize winners will receive a copy of A Blonde Bengali Wife and I will be doing a 5 minute talk about Bhola... but don't let that put you off! The food alone will compensate, and the company will be second to none.
