         Yes, the unexpected (but hoped-for) participant showed up also the
following day (after Patrick's report), too. I am incredibly busy,
preparing to race back to Caracas tomorrow. If I get a chance, I'll send a
note out with some impressions and a statement of solidarity with Cuba
signed by foreign participants. I didn't even get a chance to meet Diego
and Terrance. (Claudio wasn't there, and I'm not certain about Alejandro.)
I'll be interested in what others there have to say---- and, definitely,
Diego can tell about a very unexpected development in relation to the
unexpected participant!
