Just getting back to home in Los Angeles. Trip was quiet, flight half-full, mostly tired and sleepy people. The flight attendants were older women who were a delight to be around, enthusiastic about helping people. Just great. No exit tax anymore. First time in ages I didn’t get called to customs because my bags are always filled with books. A doctor and nurse attended me in a private room and she gave me the shot. Painlessly.
I’ve been thinking now I just have to take some time to give some thought to what I’ve seen and heard in Cuba during this past month. I don’t want to start to create lots more cutting and pasting. I want to share it with those who’d be interested. I left there and came back feeling very enthused about what I think they’re trying to do and plan to write about it in some detail. Just kind of shapshots or vignettes from a month in Cuba. There’s plenty of work to be done. Let me tell you. Well, I WILL tell you as I get a handle on it.
I’ll share my thinking as it develops. Stay tuned, please.
And thanks for listening.
