The Cuba of Yesteryear

April 15, 2014

This is the Cuba my Mother remembers as a little girl.  People that vacation in Cuba can make pretend all they want, but this is what they are really missing out on. Among a myriad of other things, my Mother remembers yacht races and food that was made freshly available on a daily basis. Not to mention, the Copacabana and Tropicana nightclubs catered to both tourists, as well as the Cuban community.

An American white successful female real estate agent (in her 60s at the time) that I worked with would tell me stories about how she would hop on a cruise to Cuba on the weekends. She called it a “weekend getaway.”  And, her stories always backed up the wonderful things I would hear my family say about their country, now just trapped in time.

Where did this Cuba go?
