Here are two sites I mention for local chauvanistic reasons, wishing to give my friends and neighbours as much help as I can.
The first is a blog dedicated to Northampton band Last Stop Chinatown, and it's written by my friend Jan's partner Gary. Good photographs and high-energy prose are the features. You are likely to get infected by the author's enthusiasm for the band, so be warned.
The second site is called Africa Abroad. It's owned and run by a Zimbabwean guy I met last night who goes by the name of Peaceful, and it's a kind of directory of cultural and religious events, organisations and meeting places outside that vast and diverse continent. A description that doesn't really do the site justice, but you get the idea.
