For those of you who are familiar with my discussions, you very well know that I absolutely hate links to other websites (because some of them have been flagged as being dangerous, but not this one). However, this excellent 75 minute video on Cuba starts with their very early history and goes all the way up to the present. It is from Havana Club Rum. It is in Spanish with English narration, pero no es necesito para habla espanol (but it certainly helps).To understand Cuban rum, one needs to understand their melting pot of people, their music, their cigars, their creativity of dealing with what little that they have, and their all around happiness. However, this video was done before the current protests began about a week ago, so things may very well change again.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1gWkBw_TxE

hugorivero: Yes, I know that my Spanish is quite rusty. In the early nineties when I traveled to Mexico and other Spanish speaking countries, I could carry on a conversation in Spanish for about an hour. As with any language, if you don't use it, you will lose it.
