Recess before the New Year

I will be in Cuba for two weeks and may not have a regular internet connection there.

Please leave your comments. They will be published with a certain delay.

Here is a story about the next possible wave of neo-cons. Beware !

Happy New Year !

Feliz Navidad, compadre!

Have a lovely holiday!

Dear all,

Thank you for your greetings and wishes. It is somehow a painful journey for me. We are not on a beach vacation so we are seeing the country unlike tourists. Cuba is a wonderful and proud country with agreat human and knowledge potential but the economic situation is a disaster. Will write about it upon my return.

Bonnes vacances, Sophie, et un bisou à Fidel.
Reviens vite, wherever that is.

Hola Doña Sofía,

Feliz Navidad comadre


“compadre” is only for macho third-world-ist Marxist types such as comrade Fielding Mellish

When Castro/Esposito tells him: “You have a chance to die for freedom.”

Fielding Mellish replies: “Yes, well, freedom is wonderful. On the other hand, if you're dead, it's a tremendous drawback to your sex life”

One of the best one-liners I’ve ever heard…together with this one from the same movie:

“I think Mr. Mellish is a traitor to this country because his views are different from the views of the President and others of his kind. Differences of opinion should be tolerated, but not when they're too different”

Chere Annie,

Les cubains de toutes tendances ont une veritable affection pour Fidel.
A bientot sur la blogosphere car pour le moment mon acces a internet est bien complique. je suis encore pour 5 jours a Cuba exactemnent a la Havane, ville superbe et qui possede une chocolaterie avec des moules d origine Belge, de quoi ravir mon cher epoux qui est Belge d origine.

Dear Victor,

I think Behemoth is not so mistaken. I have inquired about the different ways with which one can call a friend and compadre means litteraly copain...
Les copains d abord

Thanks for your Christams greetings.
