CUBA ~ A CARIBBEAN GEM !

 

 

 

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 !
