Cuba Libra!

Ox drawn carts. Hitchhikers everywhere. 1955 automobiles. Smiling people, warm breezes, lovely beach. Cocktails! Absolutely no golden arches. Interesting to see both the down and up sides to the opposite of Capitalism. Free education, housing, basic supplies, health care. Not much incentive to "get ahead" though.

Rum is my friend.

Peace.

I would love to see the unmentioned communist country. My uncle married a woman from an unmentioned communist country in the 50's when he was stationed there with the Navy. She had family living there, children from other marriages - ahem.
And I wouldn't mind bringing back a 1956 Cadillac, either.
Someday maybe, when this country (USA) grows up.

You're missing out on Montreal's first snowstorm.

"Rum is my friend"?! I can see the follow-ups now. I'm with Rum. Rum+1. You could print T-shirts that would sell well on college campuses and in straight bars.
It's 14 degrees F. here. Please take pix of the men and the cars.

Gosh golly, I had NO IDEA you were heading to Cuba.

Glad you are enjoying the rum. I much prefer vodka.

What? No Fred and Ethel?!?

I'm disappointed.

Oh, well, enjoy the sunshine while those of us in Canadia and the upper US freeze our nipples off. And don't let Serge indulge in the cigars too much!

Estoy un poco celoso porque hace mucho frío en Montréal ahora, pero estaré en Yucatan en enero y teneras mucho frío aqui!

Viva Cuba Libre! Disfrute del ron!

Be sure to stroll the Malecon. Great ocean views and hot men. Also, go to the Heron Azul for dinner if it still exists.

(Cool! My WV is dessi - almost Desi)

You see? Entitlements beget laziness.

Ask Serge if he recognizes any old Montreal city buses. They're brown. Apparently an expired fleet was shipped to Havana some years ago and adopted by their transit system.

Color me jealous, too.

Oh, and rum is my friend too!
