Buenos Aires is one of two topics to be presented in Friday’s Travelogue Duo.

Take an ‘armchair’ trip

Grannies a Gogo bring back their popular Travelogue Duo, with "trips" to Buenos Aires and Malawi.

Grannies a Gogo are bringing back, by popular demand, their Travelogue Duo, Friday at the People Place.

You can sit back and enjoy two new trips without leaving town. Maybe you want to be inspired to think about where you will head to later this year or next or perhaps to enjoy the colourful slide shows and hear of life in far-off locations without having to pay, pack and get there!  Vernon’s People Place is easy to get to and darkness falls later these evenings so the walk or drive there is pleasant as well.

Buenos Aires: European influence with Latino sizzle is presented by Susan Fenner, with a look at the tango heart beat of Argentina, and the beguiling people and places of its many barrios.

Included is a side trip to Iguazu Falls. In Buenos Aires’ La Bocca neighbourhood of “licorice allsorts” coloured buildings, street musicians play their beloved tango tunes daily while locals dance intimately in the streets. It is truly a delightful feast for the eyes and the ears while stopping to enjoy the food is a treat, too.

Journey to The Warm Heart of Africa, Malawi, with Sue Harnett. You can enjoy the sights and insights of the real Africa where she traveled and volunteered as a teacher for two years.

One can travel safely in this scenic small friendly country, which has national parks, high plateaus, rivers and is dominated by Lake Malawi. In contrast, Namibia is full of vast empty space — one can travel a day and not see another human!

Climb sand dunes of Sossusvlei, see the Big five in Etosha or drive the Skeleton Coast.

The Grannies a Gogo Travelogue Duo takes place Friday at 7 p.m. at the People Place, suite 006, lower level, 3402-27th Ave., Vernon. Entry is a $10 donation at the door, which includes the two presentations and refreshments.
