A BLAST FROM THE PAST in CUBA Part 3

A BLAST FROM THE PAST in CUBA Part 3

—– Meeting and visiting with several  housing project tenants who turned out to be doctors, professors and other professionals and fluent in English. Priceless.

—-  Seeing no computers and few cell phones anywhere.

—-  Experiencing NO traffic jams and fairly clean air.

—-  Learning that rationing still goes on and that the people make and live on very little every month.

—-  Seeing the beautiful homes and mansions that 85% of Cubans abandoned because of the Fidel Castro’s 1959 Revolution, that now are restaurants, schools, government offices, and other public buildings.

—-  Learning that Cuban products besides cigars, coffee and rum are iron mining and medical doctors.

—– Having lunch at La Torre Restaurant 33 floors high, giving us a 360-degree panoramic view of all of Havana.

—-  Learning that it takes 2 weeks to get a letter from Cuba.

—-  Shopping in the Havana’s Almacenes San José Market in old Havana and enjoying the graciousness of the artists and being thanked profusely by a vendor for buying several necklaces from her, thus making her day, month and maybe year.
