  • OmarD: Dittos. Your letter brought back many childhood memories of the now extinct Grapeland Heights Branch Library.

  • FaustaR: Beautiful letter, Carlos. And not that old. We’re not too far apart in age! B-)

  • FaustaR: A total sot. And how awful. considering his son Guillaume’s tragic life. OTOH, who knew GD has the gastric & bladder...

The Venceremos Brigades without the cane-cutting

wet3wet5

“These programs are not vacations. Every hour must be accounted for and involve meaningful interactions with Cuban people. . . . Participants attend a full daily schedule of activities that include lectures, roundtable discussions and break-out sessions, private performances, artistic demonstrations and interpretations, and informal conversations, all delivered by local people. Speakers and guests include professors and students from the University of Havana, docents from museums, artisans and craftsmen of various trades, musicians and dancers, and local residents. They will help you gain a better understanding of the history, economics, education, healthcare, politics, art, architecture, and culture of Cuba.”

How could mojito-guzzling and wet-t-shirt contests (do these still exist? They sure raged during the Disco Era.) at Varadero possibly be any worse than round-the-clock propaganda junkets narrated by Stalinist apparatchiks!...Granted, what these Harvard alumni will hear from their Castroite tour-guides is probably no different from what they heard from their Harvard professors...(doesn't Jorge Dominguez teach at Harvard?)

Students can also partake of this rollicking Harvard-Sponsored fun.

These are the Venceremos Brigades by another name.

And granted, these are Harvard students and alumni. They probably prefer listening to a lecture on dialectical materialism and the evils of the U.S. Bloqueo than judging a wet-t-shirt contest or attending a Toga party...

    America's future "leaders" and the New Era Comemierdas (we all know about the Old Era Comemierdas) that the castro government is video taping and recording so if/when they attain important positions within the US government, they can be blackmailed.
