The Truth About Cuba
I’m a married young successful decent looking guy. I met my Cuban wife when I was 26 after separating with my ex girlfriend.
I went to Cuba to take some time out after a long term relationship. I had every intention of having a good fun holiday to make myself feel better but nothing else.
I didn’t even know about jineteras.
This a very complex subject. I grew up in a poor workinng class background in London and believe me am very streetwise.
I went to Cuba as a unwise Yuma (foreigner) and knew nothing at all about the life of a Cuban.
The Cubans are POOR and as a Yuma you are nothing more than a walking CUC.
Cuban people are the most family oriented people I have met.
As a Londoner in the UK I have learnt to keep my eyes open and myself to myself.
It took only a few hours for me to realise how much as a YUMA you are taken for a mug (fool).
It’s simple and logical, please take on board what I am writing. (this may save you either a lot of money or a broken heart!)
I had a few experiences in Cuba!
On the first night I decided to go out clubbing just as I would in the UK, I met a guy in the hotel as I was ordering my taxi from south London who was checking in.
He was in his thirties decent looking geezer and we got on well. So off we went in a taxi. We didn’t have a clue about the place so just asked the taxi driver to take us some place good.
We arrived at our destination and paid our 15 CUC entrance fee.
Within 60 seconds we both have 2 beautiful Cubans off our arms. I don’t speak Spanish.
Everywhere I walked I would be approached by a young lady.
I thought maybe as a foreigner I was attractive. YES ! But only because of the CUC in my pocket.
Please do not be fooled that you are attractive to the young ladies but anything than the CUC in your pocket. YOU ARE NOT!
Its as simple as this: If your Cuban partner is many years younger than you. More attractive or slimmer you ARE being taken for a ride.
Do NOT believe it is love. It is NOT!
If you find that you are many years older or larger or more ugly than your Cuban partner. THINK!
The same rules apply as the country you are living in.
A Cuban is Cuban. As a foreigner you are not the same. Cubans are some of the friendliest decent people I have ever met.
YOU will not have the same respect!
You will be fooled into being Loved!
You will fall in love with CUBA
Your partner WILL take you for every CUC you have
I am married to a Cuban, I have much experience living in Cuba. I KNOW what I am talking about.
Treat Cuba as you would your own country: if something seems to good to be true - then it is.
Otherwise enjoy. Digest the truth and open your eyes and think with your head not your heart!
