It's especially strange in a place like Puerto Rico where people are effusive with lots of handshaking and embracing and humour. Things so tense & worried here right now, like everywhere. I was in NYC on 9/11 & then there was such an urge for community. Not that is dangerous...

Same. I lived through multiple armed conflicts and I feel like going to the small supermarket here in San Juan once a week is among the most nerve-wracking things I've ever done.

Very sad to learn of the passing of the great journalist Osange Silou-Kieffer, who I met in Paris years ago. An encyclopedia of African & Caribbean cinema, she was also the widow of journalist Guy-André Kieffer, who disappeared in Côte d'Ivoire in 2004. Rest in peace, great lady.
