Later Friday night, I attended a CD launch event at a bar in the harbour of Alicante. The son of one of my colleagues, Wilma, who can best be described as a struggling artist but with lots of support from his family, has published his first album, with the title “Este sueño de cantar”. Here is the proud mother at the launch party (on the left):
