Aprendimos a quererte - CUBA. coming soon.

Cuba was a riot for the head and the emotions.

So far I still have not managed to transfer my written down thoughts on my trip into a blog post. It was incredible how many ideas, doubts and feelings were provoked on such a short 6 day trip to Havana.

These words seem relevant: of the famous song written by Cuban poet Nicolas Villegen(sp?) about Che Guevara, and sung by many a famous singer:

"Aprendimos a quererte" - We learnt how to love you.

Perhaps in a very short zapped time frame, I learnt a little about Cuba, about how to approach it, love it for all the confusion and sadness and frustration it makes you feel. Aprendí. (I learnt).

It's been ages since I've checked into your site, sorry Mađdy! Its such a wild ride! I gather you are just back from Cuba, so let's hear about it...
I've been talking to some younger colleagues about their career paths (and yours). Fascinating diversity...I'll email.
