Despite the #US blockade: “In #Cuba the Industry 4.0 is coming soon”

Since 1959, employment and the right to work have been guaranteed in Cuba, codified in the Labor Code and reaffirmed in the new Constitution.

Not even in the most difficult moments of the Revolution has a single worker been abandoned to fate, shock therapies have never been applied. On the contrary, adhering to the principle of non-discrimination, access to jobs has been ensured regardless of sex, race, creed, or any other exclusionary factor.

If I were not Cuban, how many things I would have lost, how much Creole substance, how much laughter and handshakes.

If the stork had thrown me in other latitudes, I would not have grown up with the doors of my house always open in the middle of a rural, quiet and picturesque neighborhood.

I would not have graduated from college without paying a penny.

I would be missing the pictures next to Jose Marti at school, the memory of the  parents tying blue or red scarves around their young childrens necks the euphoria of the neighbourhood after the Stevenson’s fulminating knockout on the prominent and squarejaw yankee Duanne Bobbick, who was nicknamed “The withe hope” and, hope at last, it was eaten by the goat.

If I were not Cuban, I would have ignored the collective joy that is woven around a large pot full of broth in the middle of the street.

I would not know the clatter of dominoes under an almond tree, nor would I have memories of the “Buey Cansao” of the Van Van, the “Nueva Trova”, Palmas y cañas” or even the meteorological statement of Dr. José Rubiera, known in my town as the Hurricane Hunter

If I were not Cuban I would not have applauded Fidel whenever the carapacho sounded to the characters from the North, I would never have premiered a guayabera and probably did not know anything about the ball, staying out of the crowd when Antonio Muñoz the ball burst and Bobby Salamanca shouted at the top of his lungs: “Goodbye, Lolita of my life.” I would not know the congrí, nor the pig roasted in a plectrum.

If I were not Cuban, I could get up early and not drink coffee, I would always speak softly, I would not joke in the most unexpected places, I would not engage in improvised conversations with any stranger at the bus stop, I would not ask the neighbors for salt, I would not donate blood voluntarily, I would know a little less solidarity, I would not go to hospitals for free, I would not have children protected by free vaccines, I would not pay attention to the Virgin of Charity, to the stamps of San Lazaro or to the offerings left in the trunks of the ceibas.

I would ignore the joy to make a constitution and have the right to vote for it, and above all and live in people strongher tha a twister.

I would never have learn than you van live with less but with more pride, that you can block anything but the smile and the desire to live witout pride.

Why You Should Take an Educational Trip to Dive Cuba – Via www.deeperblue.com

Cuba may be one of the best diving destinations in the world. For decades, Cuba has been a favorite dive destination for Canadian divers. The combination of great dive sites, year-round diving and an interesting culture is the perfect draw. Cuba has over 500 dive sites which outnumbers Cayman’s 365 dive site program.

Destinations such as Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen), Canarreos Archipelago, Jardines del Rey (Garden of the Kings), Varadero and the Hicacos Peninsula, are well-known to Canadian divers but not as well-known to the rest of us. The primary reason is that Cuba is not widely marketed as a scuba diving destination.

Tourists from the United States form the largest number of tourist in the Caribbean. Also, The majority of scuba divers are from the United States. We, therefore, find that most of the marketing is targetted to that market. However, The US does not allow its citizens to visit Cuba for tourism. So marketing from Cuba is lacking.

Las Tunas, Cuba: a favorite destination for nature, sun and beach tourism – Via Cuba Travel

Sin título

In Las Tunas, Cuba, life goes by at a slower pace and is best enjoyed. It’s a favorite destination for nature, sun and beach tourism, bathing its coasts with the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Guacanayabo. The so called Balcony of the Cuban Western has a nice weather all year long, with temperatures that range from 69.8 to 86 °F, so outdoor activities are among the top tourist attractions in Las Tunas.

Las Tunas is a fertile, sweet land as it bases its economy on the sugar production, consumed nationally and exported to the world. Likewise, agriculture is an important part of the life of Las Tunas, associating it with the tourist activity to turn it into a destination for rural tourism.
