LOL!
 
I reckon this song would sound much better if played live in an open air café after several glasses were consumed.

Ibrahim Ferrer has a voice as smooth as chocolate. It's a compelling argument for spending the next 40 years in bars smoking cigars and sipping rum.

I've heard the same from a lot of my international friends that have visited Cuba: a lovely place stuck in a time warp, full of friendly, generous people and beautiful scenery.

Makes me wonder if that's because they've been spared the American influence of "money-over-all-things". 

 
Now that the Obama Administration is moving to normalize relations after 50 years, I have only one thing to say: 

See Cuba now before we ruin it.

I could not have stated it better. Exactly right. I never get tired of listening to this album.

I can't forget the part of the movie where they finally coaxed Ruben Gonzalez to play again. He had given up, you know? But they were able to bring him out and share his magic with the world again.

You gotta laugh, Otomi - every culture has an element of they all look the same to me going on - although I suspect the original "Mexican" comment was a pretty successful troll, and the followups subtle parody. Can't tell you how often I've been mistaken for everything from a Brit to a Canuck overseas, and I'm as Deep South a Southern boy as was ever born!
