Live from Cuba Nostalgia...

Here I am at Cuba Nostalgia blogging from the Babalu Blog booth. It is a great atmosphere here, with music and DVD's playing, people walking up to the booth to e-mail fidel, and others coming up to say that they read Val's blog on a daily basis.

Others here include fellow blogger George of Universal Spectator , Babalu ace reporter Julio Zangroniz, and loyal Babalu (and 26th Parallel) reader Kathleen who's here all the way from California. It's an honor to be here with all these great people who until recently I only knew through words and e-mails.

I must admit being a bit star-struck being here, especially since Val and Babalu Blog have been such a big inspiration and influence in my blogging life. However, Val and his wife Maggie have been great hosts and have made me feel part of the "team" even though they've been running around like crazy.

Look for more updates throughout the weekend.
