3rd anniversary of El Café Cubano…sad day


Today marks the 3rd anniversary of the El Café Cubano blog. To me a sad day because Cuba, still after 49 years is in the grip of an outlaw criminal regime. PLEASE, there is no justification for the revolution and it’s crimes. The SOLE objective of El Café Cubano is that of a FREE Cuba.

The origin of this blog started out as a solemn promise to family member many years ago. I hope I have not disappointed or let that person down?

The name for the blog El Café Cubano came about for two reasons: first: most of my treasured memories growing up were simple things like my family sitting at the kitchen table talking (loud!!) and sipping coffee. My dear mother would always wake up the house with that sweet aroma of El Café Cubano. To this day, when this viejo goes home to visit, my mom will put on the cafetera and the saying: do you want Café Cubano? OF COURSE!

Second reason; On several occasions while praying the rosary at the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the smell of Cuban coffee would overwhelm me and I would ask others: do you smell coffee? NO was the response, and a look back that I was crazy!!! To this day while praying, it still happens…now I don’t know the reason, but it’s a sign.

Hence…El Café Cubano


Cuba will be FREE one day and GOOD will reign over evil!


God bless all of you!

I was going to say "paciencia amigo, paciencia ..."

But as a non-Cuban, how can I even suggest patience in this situation. This Cuban tragedy has been going on for so long, it is easy to despair.

At least we can all hope the children of Cuba will have a brighter future, which I was reminded of today by Yoani Sanchez' interview in Univision (the second video) when asked about what her child will think of her activities, blogging against the regime.

In case you haven't seen the interview, here is the YouTube version (in Spanish of course):
