I have this underlying feeling that all Cubans are trapped. I still don't know enough about the past and present reality of the situation to fully comprehend the extent of the their trapped-ness though.
The Australian I met rode around in one of 1950s almendrones cars - which as it turns out are ALL either shared taxis or taxis meant for tourists. She was telling me that she hadn’t heard anyone say anything bad about Fidel but during that ride the driver said that if Cubans were allowed to leave and go to America, there’d only be two Cubans left, Fidel and Raul.
Funny but heartbreaking. In so many ways.
