Manà are popular here too. I know they are from South America, but I don't know which country (Could it be Columbia?). Now, of course, Alejandro Sanz is the flavour of the month

By-the-way, I'm impressed with the English here too, and I think your idea of an visit to Cambridge is a great idea - I think everybody who can should go abroad and experience different cultures as much as they can. And, you're right about everything closing early (even the discos!)
