Some months ago,  Steve Roll from TravelOjo asked me to contribute to an ebook on Latin American life and travel.

The resulting eBook – Celebrating Latin America at Ground Level – has just been released and is free to download. It is filled with short slices of life from across the Latin world, from Mexico to Patagonia. It also offers a good introduction to a blogging community, which is spread equally far and wide.

I suggest checking out the book and the contributors’ blogs/tweets. Here’s a list, kindly collated by Margaret from Cachando Chile, in the order in which they appear in the book:

Laura Quinn (Lonely Girl Travels ) Travel
Ernest White (Fly Brother) Travel

Steven Roll, of Travel Ojos, just released his first e-book: Celebrating Latin America at Ground Level, a collection of tales from 29 expats and travel writers on just about every imaginable aspect of life in Latin America, from food and drink, to life and love, to family and work and leisure, to getting things done and just hanging around, to  speaking (or trying to) to playing and dancing, and most of all, just enjoying this wonderful region, from Mexico to Patagonia. The e-book is free–just click: Celebrating Latin America at Ground Level to download a copy of your own–absolutely no strings attached! I was pleased that Steve asked me to participate (my friend and fellow Chile-blogger Eileen from Bearshapedsphere’s there too), and we’re in good company. Here’s the list of participating authors, their blogs, and their blog topics… and what the heck, why not share a little link love while we’re at it! (you’ll find their links in the book too).
