Blogging from Birmingham

OVER the next 7 days, I will try to blog whenever I can from Birmingham, UK where I am attending the 13th edition of the Leadership for Social Justice Institute, together with more than 60 other Ford Foundation international fellows.

Birmingham, according to Wikipedia, "is the largest of England's
core cities, and is generally considered to be the UK's second city. The city's reputation was forged as the powerhouse of the Industrial Revolution in Britain, a fact which led to Birmingham being known as 'the workshop of the world' or the 'city of a thousand trades'."

With only one PC terminal available here (as of the moment), I have to get this post done quick as there are other participants already waiting for their turn.:)
