My photo album
Dora, our beloved greyhound who passed away in January 2018 leaving a big, painful gap in our lives.
We rescued I Nam through and adoption programme in Thailand. She was four months old when we met her at Soi Dog, an organisation that rescues dogs and cats from the streets and the meat trade.

At last I could convince my uncle Hugo and aunt Silvia to travel to England. Here we are at Westminster Bridge in London
Cristián León and Zoila Fors at the Embassy of Chile. You can see Bárbara López in the background as well.
Another stage of my life as an MA student at Derby University with my much younger classmates. I could have been their granny, LOL Dave Barker was my supervisor.

This picture makes me smile each time I look at it. We were playing scrabble at the cottage in Wales and I Nam decided to 'help' (she is very helpful, lol) Lynda by sleeping on her arm.

In this album you’ll find a collection of some of my photographs that show my life both in the UK and in Chile. Most of them remind me of who I am, of those who love(d) me and of those who have touched my life in so many ways. I will keep adding more, so be patient.
