Ceri Jones: A Brief Sojourn
I began my journey with Ceri not in windy Cardiff, where she was born, but in windy Cádiz, although somewhat sunnier, not to mention warmer, in the south west of Andalucia, Spain.
There she lives with her two kids, who are the centre of her universe at the moment. Proof of that is in the fact that whatever work Ceri takes on, it has to fit in around having fun with them.
This means that she currently writes more than she teaches, and she’s writing mostly materials for general English adult and teenage learners at the moment.
We duly left her two kids in good care, and stepped back in time to 1986, where we found ourselves in a city on a hillside. She showed me around the beautiful area of L’Aquila in Abruzzo where we walked through the maze of narrow streets until we ended up in an elegant piazza, where we stopped to have a cappuccino and a gelato.
Then, we journeyed on to Reading, where Dale, my previous interviewee, was born. When the winds broke our umbrellas, we decided to set off towards Madrid.
After a hot cortado, accompanied by a mantecado, we soaked in Goya & company, but when the flamenco got too mournful and it got too cold for my bones, I suggested moving on further south, and, by this time, Ceri was somewhat worried about her kids, so we found ourselves back in Cádiz again.
It was here where I left her, hugging and kissing her pride and joy, oblivious of my parting. Why don’t you join us in our short but enriching journey?
