The BlackGringa Talks….


Yes…every so often we record ourselves saying relatively random and superfluous things.  And today we thought we  would share some of those things with you.

Why So Many Cuban School Children? – Gallery


QUESTION – Little Lucie, why did you take so many pictures of school children?

RESPONSE – I think the school children here would be interested in them, because they would be really interested in how they look and how they dress.

Presenting Little Lucie’s Gallery of Cuban School Children

Day 2 – Camaguey, Cuba


The beauty of Cuba is that it is one of the safest places on the planet and the beauty of Cubans is that they are some of the warmest and friendliest people on the planet.  While we were waiting at the Varadero bus station, we struck up a conversation with a woman who is from Camaguey (our next stop) and when I explained that we were just spending the day in the city to look around, she looked at all of our stuff and basically said your coming home with me… and she meant it.  We left Varadero on a 9:30pm bus (Viazul) and woke up at 5:30 am in Camaguey.  We then went to our friend’s home to drop off our stuff, wash up, change our clothes, have coffee (which in Cuba, is some strong stuff), and head out for the day.
