... open air cafe AS several glasses are consumed ....  and why can't I go to Cuba any longer?  Hunh?  Mr White House Guy?  Why not?

Ras le bol des musiques latinos, toujours répétitives ad nauseam.

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.

Its August 2011 and I'm back in the Hotel National in Havana, the evening lightning has passed and there is a nice cooling breeze coming from the sea.  My 3rd Cuba Libre is going down and so are the cigars.   Scuba diving again in the morning, then out to Old Havana for some cruzing in a Lada (or a 3 wheeler).  you can keep your yank tanks, the ladas have the fun.   Beautiful country and people.

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

Just wonderful. What an incredible bunch of musicians. Ry Cooder did the world a great service: if not for his efforts those artists almost certainly wouldn't be remembered. But now they will live forever.

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.

Paz, Caballeros.
