I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and go to Plaid Cymru's headquarters in Cardiff. Having been a member of plaid Cymru
for some years I thought I
would introduce myself and also see if they had one of Gwynfor Evan's books for sale.
It took me some time to find the place, even though I knew it was close to where Cardiff Uni had it's student union when I was a student of University Wales Institute. The problem was that in the large number of years that I have been away Cardiff has changed considerably. I decided to make a quick visit to the National Museum for an hour as it was close to lunch-time and then find Plaid after lunch.

|After having looked at some of the art and archeological exhibits, I enquired at the desk where the street was that Plaid was located in. A map was found and soon I was heading in the right direction.|
I had a great welcome from Dafydd, Non, Nerys
and Anna in the office and was shown around
and given lots of information and some small
gifts for the members
back in Melbourne. I was
also promised political information for the
Melbourne Plaid Cymru website from them
(See the Political web page to be directed to
the Plaid website). Of course the UK is going
through great changes in administration and
Wales is facing the reality of forming their own
Parliament and becoming a nation
of Europe in its own right.
Unfortunately they didn't have Gwynfor Evan's book available so I headed off to track down one of the larger bookshops that might stock Welsh books.
