It's Rare But There is Real Love in Cuba
Just back from Havana, third time, visting my girlfriend, I have read the stories on this website, and indeed real love is hard to find. But it's not so "black and white" as some of the stories are written on the site. Love in Cuba is sometimes "grey".
My girlfriend is 40 and Grand Mother, I'am 49, with a little bit of my help, she is running now together with her son a small Souvenir Stand in Havana, she is very proud to be independent now, but indeed in the past she was going out with tourists, to get a good meal, and enjoy more than only one seat in a very small room with nothing.
She don't want to leave Cuba, because of the care for the family, and to be honest I don't want to life in Havana forever. I'am living in the Bahamas so traveling to Havana is less than 2 hours, and we have to see what the future will bring for our relation.
It took a long time before I could met her family, but with this visit, I was introduced to her family, poor but very proud hard working Cubans. In first instance they politely refused my invitation for a family dinner, but in the end they agreed to go, but to the most cheapest restaurant and picked out of the menue card also the most cheapest meals.
I have seen it all, the housing, hospitals, and indeed love comes first, but a better life, is a part of it, I can't deny that. But is that not similar outside Cuba?
I have a wonderfull time with her and specially with her family, her Grand Daughter and also Grand Mother are adorable. Money is no problem for me. I worked very hard my whole life, and "lost" my own family, and I find happiness with her and her family.
