“Work” in Cuba Means Working for the State

This “work” business has so many implications here in Cuba and there are so many ways of looking at it which are the same in number as any sea urchin’s razor-sharp spikes.

Abuse Isn’t only a Beating

This year, I was invited to take part in the Pinar del Rio carnival celebrations. There was a healthy and festive atmosphere in spite of the suffocating heat and the exorbitant prices of food on offer at kiosks. Continue reading

Cuba: A Lot of Noise, Not Enough Respect

The issue of noise in Cuba has been one of the most popular and repetitive on a daily basis, for a while now.

Che’s Time in Miami and his “Hate for Imperialism”

Very little is known about the time Che spent in Miami. There’s not very much to know anyway. An accidental and forced stop, while he was traveling back to Argentina to get his medicine degree.
