DECEMBER 5, 2019 TWO MONTH ANNIVERSARY

It was on October 5, 2019 that this buddhist monk appeared at the hotel where I was having a late breakfast, watching the calm Arabian Sea.
Just the day before a good friend had returned to Tehran, Iran
a array of events had followed since then...
MA NISHTANAH
why was this visit to LA HAVANA different from all the other visits.. I came from LA Havana to Miami yesterday..

The effusiveness and the mystery that marked my meeting with the Tibetan monk on October 5, two months ago, has continued.
The tenderness in the heart was made further tender by the events in Iran.
A short but an extraordinary visit by a sweet person from the mountains of Eastern Cuba.
that set the pace for the days to come.
Lots of affections from many quarters, genuine kindness of my Cuban friends
Beautiful days in Havana with mild sunshine and caressing winds.
Delicious foods prepared by my Cuban sister. (lobster, shrimps, carnero, green veggies) and wine from South America
Surrounded by people who do not hold rigid ideas about religion and the church has no presence here in the island but the African spiritism is felt here but is fluid.
Solidarity and sharing, and that precious gift of all, TIME, to be available to each other.
3/4 December was the celebration of Chango the supreme African spirit, syncretized with Santa Barbara.
It was felt 

LOVELY LOVELY STAY IN THE CITY, SAN CRISTOBAL DE LA HABANA, CUBA
