Another blast from the past — and present

CĂșcuta has been in the news because Ambassador Haley was up there critiquing Venezuela and offering a little money. It’s where we crossed into Venezuela while on a business trip with a mining company 42 years ago, if memory serves. Not too fancy an area. We don’t remember which side of the border we were on when we saw an outdoor butcher shop with slabs of meat hanging outside on wooden rails. Notably, it’s the only place in the world we’ve been where we saw kids with rickets walking around. If we have the pictures we will post them. Very sad and ugh.
