About Paul Read

Writer and teacher of Tai Chi and many things (not quite 10.000) based in the Granada area of Spain. Born in London, England but raised as a Wanderer and Ponderer of the Way. Now I am perpetually and linguistically lost, but recovering a little clarity through the use of good technology, soft philosophy and many glasses of gazpacho during the humid summer months.

As Teapotmonk (Tai Chi identity) I can be found at the blog listing below.

Inside the Tortilla: The Journey
The epic journey from the serpentine coast of the Mediterranean to deep inside the land of the Tortilla in search of flavour, authenticity and a town where the ping of the microwave had yet to be heard. A journey that would discover if the tortilla was just a floppy potato omelet or a gastronomic and political symbol of a changing era.
