My poor Baracoa!!!

Hurricane Matthew devastated beautiful Baracoa, Cuba's first city in Oriente, the eastern tip of the island.

For weeks after my amazing trip to this wonderful city in June I blogged about my experience there among some of the most welcoming and interesting people I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

This morning, pictures posted by the various media with access to Cuba have left me stunned and saddened to the core.

My heart is with you, my friends.  I hope in days to come I might be able to help you in some way as you rebuild.  I encourage all who read my blog to stay tuned to my postings and ways that we might be able to help Baracoa get back on their feet.
