Uzbekistan comes to the Maes

Jason Mohammad Jason Mohammad | 10:39 UK time, Thursday, 5 August 2010

So we're in the middle of the Radio Wales Phone-In when, as we're on the news, a young man comes to our studio and asks: are you Jason Mohammad? Yep! Turns out that Tobi Jon is from Uzbekistan, reads law, is in London and wanted to see what the Eisteddfod had to offer.

Moreover, he'd seen clips of my pilgrimage to Mecca, produced for S4C last year, on the internet.

I invited Tobi onto the programme and he was a wonderful contributor - charming with kind words about the Eisteddfod. You can hear it again on the BBC iPlayer.

Also good to see some of my old lecturers from Swansea University. I said a few words at their stand about Professor Hywel Teifi Edwards this afternoon, who died earlier this year. I studied Welsh under Hywel and he truly was an inspiration to so many people especially his students. Former students were also there and they were invited to write their memories about Yr Athro Hywel Teifi on a very special wall at the stand.

The Eisteddfod is just not the same without him.
