Gracias Raul!

A very special thanks to Raul, who just sent me the book I’ve been wanting to read for quite some time.

Waiting for Snow in Havana, by Carlos Eire.

I find myself reduced to tears upon reading only the Preambulo.

Still, all of us are responsible for our own actions.

Not even (f)idel is exempt from all this.

Nor Che, nor his chauffeurs, nor his mansion.

Nor the many Cubans who soiled their pants

before they were shot to death.

Nor the fourteen thousand children who flew away from their parents.

Nor the love and desperation that caused them to fly.

Ay, Cuba.
