On July 31, 2021
As I’ve stated previously, I simply have trouble trusting any news coming out of the United States on Cuba, largely because it just reflects the hardened position of those who are reporting it.

Blogging will probably be extremely light from me for the next 10 days as I am taking students to Cuba starting tomorrow. Obviously my goal here is summed up here: Friends, am I going to be converting

This is not a post on the Venezuelan situation per se. To be clear, Maduro is terrible, but so is the opposition, who are dominated by the sort of racists that vote for Bolsonaro in Brazil and Trump in the United States. There is no easy answer for Venezuelans about their own country and even […]
