Below is a recent extract from Chaz'z blog:

Not only in Mexican, but in Mexico...

I just scanned my passport and sent that, plus a story - "Live at Maly's", for those of you playing along - to a nice lady in Mexico City.

And why would I do this, you ask? Because those nice people who are translating another story of mine - "Going the Jerusalem Mile", for those of you playing along - into Mexican and publishing it therefrom have decided that they want me there in person for the launch, at the Zocalo International Book Fair, from the 8th to the 13th October. Apparently a million people are expected to turn out to see me. I'm quite excited.
