Wales was one of the featured nations at this year's Smithsonian Folklife Festival held over two weeks on the National Mall in Washington D.C.I had the honor of working for the Wales Smithsonian Cymru program over the past three months and wanted to convey how much of a pleasure it has been to represent my country in this capacity and work for such a renowned institution.This was a unique opportunity to lift Wales' profile and share our wonderful culture with the people of America and the world. Wales put on a diverse program, from poetry, song and slate splitting to sustainable building, sports and animation. It proved a huge success and the level of interest was truly amazing.I also wanted to share a link to a BBC show shot at the Newseum where I had the honor of appearing on a panel with First Minister of Wales Rhodri Morgan and Gareth Howell, who works for the U.S. government in D.C.'s a link to the Festival site:
