For me it all began here a looong time ago, Cuba

Cuba Cuba Cuba Cuba Cuba Cuba Cuba Cuba Cuba CubaIn continuing my saga of remembrance of my life’s corners and meandering places I now take you back to where it all began for me a looong time ago, Cuba. As a holder of four passports, the first one was Cuban.

I was born there in the town of Punta Brava, a once historical town of Cuba,where the war of Independence from Spain saw one of our greatest hero fall in combat. Now with the new revolution, all that history is gone and hardly ever mentioned. Cuba has change a lot ,it is not the same and for me it will never be the same.

Now, only memories lingered, and some places of share family values and love. Far far away, it seems difficult to even write that upon my latest visit in 2012, the area where I grew up seems different;;;well unrecognizable;;; well poorer. It seems to me like I was not from there. It required some days of adjustment for things to come back again.

This post is to all and especially to me as  a reminder of what it was, a lingering space in time of a once upon a time place call Punta Brava, city of Havana metropolitan area, Republic of Cuba.

Enjoy the stories, I read them myself once in a while just to keep my feet on the ground. Glance the photos some are new some are very old, all meaningful as a source of my DNA. Enjoy the pictures, and feel the people when visiting , they are the main things, the regular guy on the street. Cheers
