It’s a perfect morning for a bit of Cuban soul

As an aside, I was lax in posting on this site for a couple of weeks. Mea culpa.

But I had a good reason: I was traveling in Cuba and Internet access was a bit spotty.

My wife and I were part of a Road Scholar tour, which took us from Miami on an eight-day excursion of the island. Among the cities we visited were Santa Clara, Trinidad and Havana, with an afternoon stop at the infamous Bahia de Cochines — better known as the Bay of Pigs (more on that at another time).

One of our principal stops, though, was in the port city of Cienfuegos. And, luck has it, one of my fellow travelers found a YouTube video featuring both the city and the music of the late Cuban musician Beny Moré.

I've posted the video below. Enjoy.
