The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Havana Bay

I have recently read " Havana Bay " by Martin Cruz Smith
Hero Arkady Renko a Russian investigator travels to Cuba to identify a body found at sea and presumed to be that of a Colonel Sergei Pribluda - he has a romantic attachment ( old fashioned phrase ! ) with detective Ofelia Osorio and nearly meets a sticky end at the hands of Segeant Luna.
The book paints a vivid picture of Cuban poverty, the seedy side and the legacy of its African past.
At times I felt that the story line was rather on the slow side and shall not rush to purchase any more books from this series

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
