My little friend 88 - Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Thank you for visting my home page! Please accept my apologies as these pages need a good overhaul - they are a mess! If I stay home for the holidays I may do some work then - but please do look around the messy organization - there are a few good finds in here, and a look at my Cuba, circa late 1940's.

The little guy in the photo came and stood by as I was taking photos and videos of the Garganta del Diablo series of falls at Iguazu. It stood there for a while, as if sharing it's beautiful wings with my camera. I will always treasure my new little buddy ... 88.

Christmas 2008 -

My husband used to say that life was better lived like a rollercoaster - if you had low's, so would you have highs. Here is living proof, after a solemn dissertation about the holidays I receive the most beautiful flowers from my family in California. How can I not be joyful with people around who are so thoughtful!

Many hugs to all for Christmas or for any Holiday you celebrate this season - and don't let the bedbugs bite!

1. This video was banned in Cuba ... do you see anything offensive?

2. On foreigners looking for "friends" in Cuba:

Don't get me mixed up - I'm not a callejero!:

Note: This video does not apply to those visiting Cuba for its tourist qualities, it only applies to those going there for other types of ... action.

      Thank you Tere - sorry I have not been logging to VT. By the way, we have decided to cancel St Pete because we already had plans and it becomes very difficult - but maybe we'll return to Lisbon soon, Wayne loves Portugal!
