PRAISE FOR MOLASSES BREAD AND TEA :

FROM CARL SAFINA, STEPHEN HADDELSEY, the GEOGRAPHICAL MAGAZINE UK and the NORTH TORONTO POST MAGAZINE




 I am just back from Peru. Thanks for writing. 
 In just a few lines you painted a heartbreaking
image that  obviously still feels vivid for you. 
Thanks for sharing, though it’s a disturbing little window on a wider world of inflicted pain.
