I really enjoyed this history of Cuba. I must admit I am fascinated by the island. My father was adopted and when we met his biological family we learned of a great grandfather that was a cuban dentist. As the story was told to me, his wife was once a part of Welsh royalty but fell in love with him on vacation and was banished. I would love to get the opportunity to visit this country and experience the people and the lifestyle they are living. It is so fascinating that in the 21st century people are still being oppressed all around the world. It is sad to say but the more I explore the world and read about the U.S.’s foreign relations the more disappointed I am with my country. Our ideals were solid in the beginning but corruption has taken over in so many facets. I would love to be an ex-pat one day. I’d like to experience first hand the amount of genuine people that still exist in our world today.
