RUMBA IN THE HAVANA CLUB ~ JULY 2016
CUBA ~ Discovered by SPAIN in 192 and fought over ever since !
The UK owned it in the 18th C and Spain owned FLORIDA ! We saw
the potential of DISNEY LAND so we swapped CUBA for FLORIDA !
UNUSUALLY situated ~ so near to Miami ~ it is an emerald jewel
set in a sapphire sea. In the 20th C it was a playground for Rich
American Gangsters for speakeasies ~ gambling ~ prostitution !
BATISTA (1940 ~ 1959) turned a blindeye to the American exploitation
of the Island because he loved the DOLLARS ! Is MISTER TRUMP so so
ignorant that he does not understand that it was a PEOPLES REVOLUTION.
AMERICA mistakenly believed the CUBANS would rally behind the BAY
of PIGS invasion ! It was initiated by EISENHOWER (who should have
known better !) and reluctantly impemented by JFK. It was a DISASTER !
Thanks for visiting ~ comment welcome ~ Love from CUBA ~ BRIAN XOX
I have just completed a two weeks Cultural Tour of Western CUBA !
The poeple were all very happy and welcoming (they love the BRITS !)
TRUMPS diatribe from Miami last Friday bore no relationship to what we
experienced. Happy people ~ at all levels ~ immaculate welcoming hotels
not a Policeman or Militia anywhere in sight (unlike LONDON !) and no
restrictions anywhere ~ CUBA LAND OF THE FREE ! The UK is supporting
CUBA with more than 40,000 visitors per year and the Cuban Economy
knows that a UK POUND is worth 1.3 US DOLLARS !
