cuban cigars....are they still illegal ( or is it only in america?)
i read once that alberto korda was once arrested in a cuban bank because he was taking a picture of his own picture on the wall, and they didn't believe him when he told them who he was.
paintist: only in the US, I think. I doubt my dad would go so far as to smuggle presents past customs for me. Especially when he Disapproves of smoking.
mf: from what my Dad said, it's pretty hard to point a camera anywhere in Cuba without taking a picture of a picture of Fidel, Che or one of the other revolutionary heros.
ah. this was then though...
Paintist - only in America.

my son, Bear, lived and worked in Cuba, part of Canada World Youth programme. He loved it, and the Cuban people. His job was to sort Cohiba cigars in a tabaqueria. found out here that they cost a fortune. All things Cuban are illegal in the US as they have a trade restriction against them. But you can buy Cuban cigars here, and Cristal beer is always sold out. And yes, Che and Fidel are everywhere on the walls, along with a lot of slogans. The US is 70 miles away, and they truly expect to be attacked. again.'specially if Fidel dies.. sorry to be so fulsome.
I wore a red RATM hoodie with Che on when I was a wee-teenager and pretending I was a rebel! Ah, youth!
(P) what's this?
