¡Viva la Revolución!

El Marzo del 2007 estuve en Cuba y en Nueva York. Me gustó más Cuba; aún con todos sus problemas y la doble moral del Gobierno Cubano. En Nueva York nevaba, en Cuba me bañanaba en la playa. Quizás fué eso. Quizás ver que unos no tenían nada y que en NYC la gente devoraba las tiendas de ropa cómo animales en un festín salvaje pudo con mi alma. Las prendas de ropa tiradas por el suelo, nuevas y brillantes, pisoteadas por la estampida de consumidoras. Aunque sin el embargo americano probablemente ya no tendrían esos coches tan chulos, tendrían los mismos coches que en todas partes… así que… no hay mal que por bien no venga o todo está podrido, como diría … yo mismo?

La música que suena es “El Negrito del Batey” de la Sonora Matancera de 1954.

I went to Cuba and new York on March 2007. I preffer Cuba. Even with that double moarlity of the Cuban Government, even with all the problems people is suffering (probably without USA embargo they wouldn’t be suffering at all!). Of course without the embargo they wouldn’t have all this cool old cars, so everything is fucked up! Maybe it was because it was snowing in NYC while I was sunbathing in Cuba. Maybe it was seeing all that ladies buying clothes in NYC, looked more like a meat feast with all that clothes on the floor being trampled like they were trash… meanwhile in Cuba they almost had nothing!

The soundtrack is “El Negrito del Batey”,  Sonora Matancera from 1954. Basically what the song says is: “Working is God’s punishment, I preffer to dance with a nice black goodlooking woman!” (me too!)
