“Fidel has told me many beautiful stories about my father, but I cannot ask him too much, he still gets very emotional at the thought of Che. For example, my father had terrible handwriting, so my mother was asked to transcribe his diaries.

Raúl got very angry and said ‘No, while Fidel and I are alive, Che is alive. He is always with us.’ They were crying then.
