No Woman No Cry Like You’ve Never Heard It Before

*Cynthia, this one’s for you.*

I don’t know what kind of emotion this will stir up for anyone else. For me, its nostalgia. I can vividly remember recording this way back in 1993 when I worked as a healthcare volunteer in Brazil for Amigos de las Americas. I was 18 years old, digging latrines in the town of Dom Marcolino, Rio Grande do Norte. No need to delve in to the whole experience. Just enjoy this video. I think its beautiful.

I was very attached to the 2 little girls, sisters, you see in the video. They followed us everywhere. I think I stared at them all the time. They were stunning.

Sorry I've been asleep at the wheel. My co-workers actually brought this to my attention -- I told you, they're new fans of your blog. Can't wait to see this tonight when I get home. This is going to be a YouTube sensation!
Thanks for posting and I hope all is well with you and the family!
