Windsurfing from Cuba to start a new life in US – BBC News

Windsurfing from Cuba to start a new life in US - BBC News

For decades, Cubans fleeing their island home in search of a new life in the US have crossed the shark-infested waters in makeshift rafts. But when Jorge Armando Martinez decided to make the journey in February he chose a different method of transport: his windsurfing board. Thinking the voyage would last only a few hours, Martinez, 28, took only a bottle of water and a bag of sweets. He was at sea for four days.

Cuban life in the streets of Santa Clara, Cuba

Santa Clara was a dynamic and relatively “prosperous city” for Cuban concepts. Santa Clara is the capital city of the Cuban province of Villa Clara. It`s located in the most central region of the province and almost in the most central region of the country. With a population near a quarter million; 242,402 people at the beginning of 2013, it`s the 5th largest Cuban city by population. It has the second university in the country and has an important cultural center. In the center is the park “Parque Vidal” where it`s lovely to sit on a bench and enjoy everything that happens around you. Single people come to this park to stroll and meet others. The bullet holes from the revolution are still visible in the walls of Hotel Santa Clara Libre. Santa Clara was founded by 175 people on July 15, 1689. One hundred and thirty-eight of them were represented by two large families already living in the area and, therefore, owners of the land next to the new city. The other 37 came from 7 other families, a priest and a governor, all of them originating in the coastal city of “San Juan de los Remedios”.
Santa Clara was the site of the last battle in the Cuban Revolution in late 1958. There were two guerrilla columns that attacked the city, one led by Ernesto Che Guevara and the other led by Camilo Cienfuegos. Guevara’s column first captured the garrison at Fomento. Then, using a bulldozer, Guevara’s soldiers destroyed railroad tracks and derailed a train full of troops and supplies sent by Batista. At the same time, Cienfuegos’s column defeated an army garrison at the Battle of Yaguajay not far from town. On December 31, 1958, the combined forces of Guevara and Cienfuegos (along with other revolutionaries under William Alexander Morgan) attacked Santa Clara. The battle was chaotic, the defenders were demoralized, some fought, others surrendered without a shot. By the afternoon, the city was captured. This victory for Castro’s troops is seen as the decisive moment in the Cuban Revolution as Batista fled Cuba less than 12 hours later.

Che Guevara: Biography, Cuban Revolution, Early Life, Family, Death (1997)

Appearances of Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara (1928–1967) in popular culture are common throughout the world. Although during his lifetime he was a highly politicized and controversial figure, in death his stylized image has been transformed into a worldwide emblem for an array of causes, representing a complex mesh of sometimes conflicting narratives. Che Guevara’s image is viewed as everything from an inspirational icon of revolution, to a retro and vintage logo. Most commonly he is represented by a facial caricature originally by Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick and based on Alberto Korda’s famous 1960 photograph titled Guerrillero Heroico. The evocative simulacra abbreviation of the photographic portrait allowed for easy reproduction and instant recognizability across various uses. For many around the world, Che has become a generic symbol of the underdog, the idealist, the iconoclast, or the man willing to die for a cause. He has become, as author Michael Casey notes in Che’s Afterlife: The Legacy of an Image, “the quintessential postmodern icon signifying anything to anyone and everything to everyone.”

Actors who have portrayed Che Guevara:

Francisco Rabal in El Che Guevara (1968)
Omar Sharif in Che! (1969)
Michael Palin in Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl (1982)
Antonio Banderas in Evita (1996)
Miguel Ruiz Días in El Che (1997)
Alfredo Vasco in Hasta la Victoria Siempre (1999)
Gael García Bernal in Fidel (2002)
Karl Sheils in Meeting Che Guevara & the Man from Maybury Hill (2003)
Gael García Bernal in The Motorcycle Diaries (2004)
Jsu Garcia in The Lost City (2005)
Martin Hyder in The Mark Steel Lectures: Che Guevara (2006)
Sam G. Preston in The True Story of Che Guevara (2007)
Eduardo Noriega in Che (2007)
Benicio del Toro in Che (2008)

In the 1998 film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Johnny Depp depicting Hunter S. Thompson awakens from an adrenochrome overdose and stands in front of a picture of Che Guevara stuck to a Mexican flag. Benicio del Toro who co starred in the film (and would later play Che Guevara in Che), has stated that Thompson kept a “big” picture of Che in his kitchen.[49]
In the 2003 documentary Breakfast with Hunter, acclaimed author Hunter S. Thompson can be seen in several scenes wearing different Che Guevara t-shirts.
Actress Lindsay Lohan dons a Che Guevara t-shirt in one scene of the 2004 film Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.[50]
Indian actor Rajat Kapoor was made up to resemble Guevara in the 2009 Bollywood thriller Siddharth-The Prisoner. In describing the reasoning, director Pryas Gupta stated that the central concept of the film is “freedom from the complexities of life” while remarking “who better than Che Guevara, to represent that spirit.”[51]
James Benning utilizes Richard Dindo’s documentary Ernesto Che Guevara: The Bolivian Diaries to form his own 1997 avant-garde film titled Utopia. The film juxtaposes Che’s vehement opposition to imperialism, with the importing of low wage Mexican laborers in the California desert to farm the Imperial Valley.[52]
The 1983 Yugoslavian film Kako sam Sistematski Uništen od Idiota (How I Was Systematically Destroyed by an Idiot), directed and co-written by Slobodan Šijan, prominently revolves around the ideas of Che Guevara. In the film, the character Babi Papuška, played by Danilo “Bata” Stojković, is searching for a real revolutionary society and a real revolution. The film opens and closes with Babi reciting a poem at rallies in Che’s honor.[53]
Leandro Katz’s 1997 film essay El Día Que Me Quieras (The Day You’ll Love Me) is a meditation on Freddy Alborta’s famous post-mortem photo of Che Guevara. Katz deconstructs and re-photographs the famous picture while drawing comparisons to the classic paintings of Mantegna’s “Dead Christ” and Rembrandt’s “The Anatomy Lesson”.

Life in Cuba; food shortages, low wages and exiled family members

youtube’s best travel videos http://www.overlander.tv

I met Alex at a Havana Pizza place. He spoke English and was keen to practise with me. I interviewed him about the realities of life in Cuba. We talk about the food shortages, the low wages and the fact that many Cuban’s have family members they have not seen for decades, living in America.

The video features shots around Havana, capturing street life, the majestic historic buildings and the ancient American cars from the 40’s and 50’s

Conocí a Alex en un lugar Habana pizza. Él habla Inglés y estaba dispuesto a practicar conmigo. Lo entrevisté acerca de las realidades de la vida en Cuba. Hablamos de la escasez de alimentos, los bajos salarios y el hecho de que muchos de cubanos tienen familiares que no han visto desde hace décadas, que viven en Estados Unidos.

El video muestra a tiros cerca de La Habana, la captura de vida de la calle, los majestuosos edificios históricos y los antiguos coches americanos de los años 40 y 50
