for the public about Cuba
Hi everyone, wow this site is packed with failed relationships. I wish there was a Cuban citizens forum to hear there side of the story. Considering this is mainly people from vacation.
Written by a born Canadian and well travelled on mission work. And I to am guilty and sorry to Cuba and its trying sweet honest people.
Victor, I wish to hear your input. From you living there, wife there.
I myself have spoken to a few Cuban people here in Canada, and they shared there experiences of wedding a foreigner to culture, climate, and personality shock.
Some tell me when the foreigner chooses to stay in Cuba for 5 years things seemed blissful. Later the other mate decides to live in Canada on a trustworthy notion of getting to know the others family and friends in there own environment. After a short time, the visiting spouse feels neglected from there so called love. The mate no longer has time for the other and is completely into the Canadian friendships. The other is left debating a future of loneliness in a strange land without there own family and friends.
This is a shame. Where are the Cuban peoples complaints and stories. Reading only forums like these are almost judgmental on a secluded nation and culture. We cannot embrace a culture looking through the fear of dishonest and a oppurtuntist mentality of superiority.
I think that its not fair. Hence why there are so many failed relationships. I am a transgressor of that mentality and I'm admitting it, to clearly be able to embrace the Cuban culture I have to look through humbled glasses. We as Canadians, foreigners tend to act or hide our mind sets to seem like there is no problem when that is a sitcom on its own. Whereas Cuban people are more humbled in there accomplishments and situation, hence hiding less. It is a lesson learned from "all of us" to deceive and fool eachother because many of us fool ourselves. None of us are better then each other.
Just a thought vic webmaster.
