Cuba 1998

I’m pleased to hear that diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba will now resume and the embargo will end. I appreciate that this is not a magic bullet that will make everything fine but it should remove a major obstacle to Cuba’s development. 

I visited there over Christmas in 1998 (as a Canadian) and ended up with mixed feelings about the place and the people. Much of it was beautiful, and many of the people warm, but ultimate I ended up seeing how trapped these people were – pretending to go along with the established system while barely concealing their working of the black market. It struck me as very sad; these were amongst the unhappiest people I’d ever met in my travels. 

Perhaps today’s news will be a major step towards a true Cuba Libre.

Top Image: I decided that I would buy a big cake and then deliver pieces to everyone in the neighborhood. Not sure why (maybe it was New Years Eve).

Second Image: This young woman was a delight – beautiful, young and playful, and it broke my heart that the only way that she could make a real living was to rent herself as a girlfriend to tourists. She was traveling with a European tourist that I met in my hotel. 

Third Image: The obligatory Fidel Castro TV speech shot.

Fourth Image: Myself, in the early stages of a spa treatment.
