Dinner at the Hacienda

Enjoyable dinner with Baroness Bonham-Carter and a  dozen or so contacts at Hacienda de los Morales on the western edge of Polanco. It really was a hacienda, going back to the 16th Century, and still sits in a large plot of land despite the urban sprawl which swallow it up last century - and as unlike the Hacienda in Manchester as you could imagine.
Jane Bonham-Carter comes from a long line of high-achievers including her great-grandfather, HH Asquith, Prime Minister 100 years ago and her cousin Helena Bonham-Carter. Jane herself seemed remarkably down-to-earth.
