Previously, I spoke about my experience when I first arrived to Cuba and the various tourist spots I had the chance to visit. This is going to be a continuation of that but slightly different.
The second week I was in Cuba, I spent it with my maternal family members. They lived a bit farther away from the main city of Havana. I got the opportunity to meet my grandfather, cousins and aunts. I recognize my grandfather by phone call and old photographs but I have never met or spoke with my aunts and younger cousins.
My grandfather is a revolutionary man. He took part in the Cuban revolution during the 50s alongside Fidel Castro and Che Guevera. We visited the presidential building my grandfather was stationed during the 50s when Fulgencio Batista, Cuba’s murderous dictator, escaped. The presidential building turned into a museum named “Museum of the revolution“.
