I actually got back about a week ago, but the combination of being around my sick brother and not sleeping enough and traveling on airplanes and sleeping in airports and kissing lots of strangers on the cheek left me with a icky, summer cold for all of this past week, so I barely had the energy to make it to work and home each day, much less think clearly enough to write a blog entry. I did however catch up on reading some of my friends' blogs, so that's something at least.
Cuba did not prove to be a running paradise this time around, though I did get in a couple of hot & steamy six milers while I was there. The track that I ran on last time has not been well maintained over the last 14 months and much of it was almost completely overgrown with weeds. And I remembered it being a fairly decent clay surface track! I did get another photo to add to the series I started last time though, Things That Run In Havana:
They're too similar to put them both in the series, so loyal readers, which is it...I was leaning towards the one with the barefoot boy closer to the viewer, but now I'm thinking the curvy seawall with the colorful bathing trunks is better. What do you think?
And if anyone's interested, I did manage to crank out an article about one aspect of my trip for work. I'd like to write more about some of the artists I met and interviewed while I was there, but that might have to wait until after my big move out west.
