Gudonya on M21's "Extraordinarios" radio program

I was kindly invited by Ricardo Blanco and Laura Oliva to their radio program "Extraordinarios" on M21 on Monday 4 December at 7pm.

I was accompanied by a lovely group of people representing the five continents and we talked about life as immigrants in Madrid. I, of course, talked about Gudonya.
