Twinning Announcement

The Open Council are delighted to announce that after a long search for the perfect partner, the South American town of Macondo has been selected as the Open Council's twin town.

Located in Columbia, Macondo grew from a tiny settlement with almost no contact with the outside world to eventually become a large and thriving place.

Macondo features in a popular book called One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. The Open Council can recommend this book to all members who wish to find out more about our twin town.
