Project Allende…

What’s in a name? In 2003 the Editor planned a trip with a friend by road from San Francisco California to Tierra Del Fuego (Argentina and Chile). Apart from the thrill of raw travel, a 4×4 epic of 50,000 kilometres, 20 countries, three oceans, various languages, there was also the learning experience which was both political and cultural.

For this reason Project Allende, (this two year learning experience) was named after both Salvador Allende and Isabel Allende, two great Chileans in the realm of Political Economics and Magical Realism for to get an inkling into Abya Yala one has to place one foot on each of these starting blocks and begin to run.
