I was able to visit the family I had never met before. I visited the house where I was born and the family tomb. I had a wonderful encounter at the Submarino Amarillo with several journalists and bands, including the legendary Cuban metal band ZEUS. I’m looking forward to going back in May. What I experienced was nothing like what I imagined. visit this beautiful island.
A special thanks to Michel Hernandez of the newspaper Granma and Bill Laswell for inspiring this trip. ”
