  1. Fria’s book is a sad reminder that the Cuba we love exists mostly in our hearts and minds.

    I’ve never been back, nor have my parents. We all know that to go back is to destroy the memories of the places we hold so dear, and we’d rather remember Cuba as it was, then come face-to-face with what 54 years of Castrocities have done to her.

  2. Yes, it’s gone. “The people” (or enough of them) traded it for utopia, and you know how that works (or doesn’t). Actually, I’m not sure it was even a case of infantile fantasy or idiotic wishful thinking. I suspect it was worse, only it’s too ugly and nasty to dwell on, so most people opt for the convenience and comfort of blaming Fidel (and maybe a few others), or external factors, or bad luck. We still can’t deal with how shitty so many Cubans turned out to be.
