Lockdown Declared In Argentina

Lockdown Declared In Argentina

With only 128 active cases of coronavirus Argentina declared lockdown would commence on 20th March. A policed enforced nationwide quarantine has come early, activating my nervous system. I was confused about exactly when it was going to start -thinking that midnight 20th March meant at the end of the day rather than the start of it. I also didn’t know… Read more →

The atmosphere in the city felt different: queues formed outside of pharmacies and supermarkets so as to limit the number of people inside. Shelves emptied, which took me by surprise as… Read more →

My First Vlog

My First Vlog in Buenos Aires

I’m very excited to share my new Vlog with you! It combines my award winning filmmaking skills with my passion for tango as well as promoting my books. It is beautifully imperfect as I’m not used to being in front of the camera and it is also logistically difficult to film myself. I have only brought my GoPro and mobile… Read more →

Eight years ago I went to see a psychic. Don’t judge me. I needed some reassurance at the time. This is what the psychic medium Dorothy Chitty said: I started writing when I was first discharged from hospital way back in 1996. But, like psychic Dorothy said, I put it aside.

Why Its Better To Have Schizophrenia In A Developing Country

This is the image that greets me when I walk into Hospital Rivadavia in Buenos Aires to see a psychologist called Delfina. Delfina means dolphin, which is my power animal. I’ve never been offered a talking therapy in the UK and when I asked if it was possible to see a psychotherapist, I was told, ‘No’ and put on a… Read more →
