My “abuela” and stories about May 20, 1902
Another May 20th and memories of my abuela:
My grandmother had a neat life.
She was born in Cuba (1892) when it was still a Spanish colony.
She recalls the celebrations on May 20, 1902 when Cuba finally became an independent country.
She left Cuba and died in the US in 1984.
Today, Cuba celebrates the 112th anniversary of that independence day that my grandmother celebrated as a little girl.
However, there is little to celebrate in Cuba in the 54th year of communism.
The Castro government will put on a show today and celebrate independence day.
However, I am sure that most Cubans won't really feel it until this corrupt dictatorship passes on.
