Tapas Of Spain In Andulucia – It’s How You Eat, Not What You Eat.

Tapas Of Spain In Andulucia – It’s How You Eat, Not What You Eat. | Hispanic Culture | Scoop.it

Tapas seem to cause a lot of confusion with people. One largely held belief is that tapas are
a type of food, when in fact, they are a way of eating food. Tapas can be anything.

Bless your heart, Granada. Not only are you packed to the rim with tapas bars, you also have upheld the seriously amazing tradition of including a free tapa with every glass of vino tinto!

Portraits from a month in Bolivia | Adrian Seah

Portraits from a month in Bolivia | Adrian Seah | Hispanic Culture | Scoop.it


Named after Latin American independence hero Simon Bolivar, who had a hand in the liberation of Panama, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia and Colombia from their Spanish overlords, Bolivia is a landlocked country in South America. Having lost its sole access to the ocean and its mineral rich Atacama and Antofagasta region to Chile during the War of the Pacific, Bolivia nonetheless remains abundantly rich in natural resources but ironically, is also one of the poorest countries in Latin America.

We had heard little about the country prior to our visit but a month in the country had given us an insight into the lives of Bolivians and its extremely varied landscape, from the arid altiplano of Uyuni and the Chilean border, to the colonial riches of Sucre, from the highest capital city in the world La Paz to the tranquil town of Copacabana by the shores of Lake Titicaca. Like its landscape, Bolivians are a huge mish mash of varied cultures and languages, chief amongst them, Spanish, Quechua, Aymara and Guarani.

My experience of interaction with Bolivians gave me the impression that they are a hardworking, hardy and extremely proud people, more reserved than their neighbours up north in Peru and down south in Chile but with a warmth that lies just below the surface, if you would but take the time to know them. I captured these portraits of people at work, at play and most of all, at ease during my month in Bolivia. They offer me a peek into a culture so unique and different from my own.....
