Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

I pushed and I pushed and I finally finished reading Mark Kurlansky's book, A Continent of Islands: Searching for the Caribbean Destiny. It really was interesting, and having travelled a little bit in the region, and having a family history of some of our offshoots being driven off of Cuba, I found a lot to learn in it. It's just that I'd been waylaid by a number of other books at the same time, and the other ones caught my fancy more. Still, I'm glad I read this, and it gives me a new perspective of the region and its people.
