Tragedy in Paradise
Hotel Cordial is the most wonderful, refreshing place to stay under normal circumstances. Puerto Mogan is a lovely fishing village with marinas and is called Little Venice because of its canals and bridges. We loved our time there in the summer. The staff are kind and thoughtful and it must grieve them so that this has taken place. It is a reminder that even a holiday paradise is only an illusion and that the reality of human need and frailty follows us everywhere. Let's pray for all those affected by the shock of this event, and especially for those whose loved ones lie terribly burned or have already died.
