Goliad and Victoria, Texas are just about where the eye of Hurricane Harvey is hitting. Just over two years ago I took a trip down to the city of Victoria and Goliad, one of Mexico’s northern outposts, now part of the US, just a few miles from Victoria. It’s an area at the junction of Spanish, French and American Empires, where what is indigenous or Mexican or whatever else depends, depends, depends, and has so often been more than difficult. This is just a very, very hasty set of photos to give you an idea of what the hurricane is hitting. I have not taken the time to groom the captions or the images.
But think of the people there tonight.
