Apologies for the silence here during the past week. I’ve just returned from an amazing nine days visiting the beautiful country of Cuba, where I had no phone or internet. I’m back now and hope to get this blog’s engines restarted right away. And if you sent me an email recently, I hope eventually to get to it, as I dig out from a backlog of several thousand new messages.
As for Cuba, I hope to write more about my visit, maybe here, maybe elsewhere. I’d originally hoped to meet with lawyers there, but that never happened. But I can tell you right off that the Cuban people are the warmest and most gracious people I’ve ever encountered. If you are contemplating visiting there, do it sooner rather than later, because warming relations between Cuba and the U.S. will inevitably change the character of this charming country.
