Aprendimos a quererte - CUBA. coming soon.
Cuba was a riot for the head and the emotions.
So far I still have not managed to transfer my written down thoughts on my trip into a blog post. It was incredible how many ideas, doubts and feelings were provoked on such a short 6 day trip to Havana.
These words seem relevant: of the famous song written by Cuban poet Nicolas Villegen(sp?) about Che Guevara, and sung by many a famous singer:
"Aprendimos a quererte" - We learnt how to love you.
Perhaps in a very short zapped time frame, I learnt a little about Cuba, about how to approach it, love it for all the confusion and sadness and frustration it makes you feel. Aprendí. (I learnt).
