#FITCuba 2017: After the footsteps of Christopher Columbus


….. The Admiral says that never before was this beautiful thing seen, full of trees, all surrounded by the river, beautiful and green and different from ours, with flowers and with their fruit, each in its own way. Many birds and birds that sang very sweetly; There were lots of palms other than those of Guinea and ours ……. The grass was great as in Andalusia for April and May …… It says that it is that island the most beautiful that Eyes have seen …

This morning, when I was walking to work, a beautiful Cuban flag hung from the door of the Artex (Cuban mercantile society whose fundamental social object is the promotion and commercialization of the Cuban culture) selling point at the end of Boulevard, Juan Bruno Zayas, it was sold between 23 and 50 cuc (btwn 24,45 and 48,90 usd)¬†¬†that’s more than the salary average in Cuba, that is more than my salary. But this price so expensive, expensive for Cubans, is for the¬†foreigners who visit our city, the flag, beautiful, is built on this island to sell it to foreigners, not to Cubans, and that is a mistake we are paying for.

#Nostalgia: If you were an island in the middle of the sea (II)

Have U felt in the skin and in the soul the nostalgia for your land ? if your answer is nope, stop 4 a moment and read.

Cuba Beautiful island by Orishas feat. Gente de Zona + Leoni Torres + Isaac Delgado + Buena Fe + Descemer Bueno + Laritza Bacallao + Waldo Mendoza + Pedrito Martinez. / (Official Video its Following)

Earth, my flag and my song was born here. Smiles that slip through the balcony door. On that trip that brings me back today. Far away, you do not know how much I miss. The noise of my town and the caress of that sea. When I am not with you, I invent you.

I bring my heart rusty. I need rope. My soul needs transfusion. Blood of my earth. I return to the cradle that gave birth to me. I return to this neighborhood that saw me run. What I was, what I am and will be, for my beautiful island

I have returned to the shelter that calms the pain. And I return to the memory of the first love. What I was, what I am and will be, for my beautiful island.

And I was surprised by the need to expand the soul. I am advised, from the reason of Mom and Dad. The Caribbean has invited you, family, spend all respected. If this came without pretext, to slow sleep orishas of the sea.

Slow, The marks tell me that time. It’s like a passenger getting on your wagon. And announce that life is a moment.

They say. The old men on the corner always say. No matter what you have, if you go down. At the station, one always returns to its roots

I will never lose my identity. In the insurance I have a present from where I come. Maybe you can understand me. Because to tell the truth my treasure is in the roots. Running under my skin

They are the ones that mark their texture and those same. They make me different until the grave. That’s why I came here today. Leave you here, the movement of my waist

Today I invite you to walk on the lots of Havana. So that you can see them yourself. Today I invite you to walk on the lots of Havana. So that you can see them, that …

Everyone here is born with his lying down. Mine slowly, and half-way, gave me side. You make it soft and do not shake me. That the night is long and the rumba has formed.



Reflections: A mirror in the web from Cuba


Post By @CubanWindow

Another goal scored against those who continue to draw the beautiful island as a missing point on the map of the social digital dynamics.

Reflejos (Reflections) is a platform created under the .cu domain (, from 100 x 100 Cuban servers that users can access freely and at no cost from the Youth Computer Club or other device and in which they have a space to share opinions, interests and needs in text format, images and videos, far from the censorship that other platforms apply to the bloggers who try to share their truth from the island, the truth that the big media hide us, which has no echo in the networks.

It is a tool designed and programmed by the Clubs themselves based on the content management made available to Cuban Internet users.

You can search for real cubans blogs from A to Z ….¬†HERE

Recommend: Arte Comic¬†–¬†Magazine and digital platform dedicated to promote the comic as an art, its development in Cuba and other areas of the planet, as well as the JORNADAS ARTEC√ďMIC event, the only convention dedicated to the ninth art on the island.
