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 !

      I like when you wrote "we saw the potential for disney land so we swapped Cuba for Florida" But in all seriousness what a different America we would have today if you hadn't! So glad you had a pleasant experience there and their people are free. Great write!

        Thanks CHRIS it is from the HEART. George the IIII (like Walt Disney) saw that all we need to do (in Florida) was drain the swamps and control the mosquitoes and 'gators ! The problem was that both FLORIDA & CUBA were too far away from the UK for a week's holiday. It now takes 9 hour by JET and then 90 days by boat. With a little support from the UK ~ Canada ~ Venezuela etc ~ CUBA will not only survive but thrive ! CUBAN HUGS BRIAN !

            A colleague of mine and his family went to Cuba two years running for a holiday and had nothing but praise for both the place and the people.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Pleased to hear that ANDY. All the feedback I get from BRITS about CUBA is also very complementary ! BRIAN
