But wait. Why is Cuba not sexy? Because it was a place like everywhere else on earth, paradise to some and hell to others. Corrupt and not so corrupt governments came and went, many good things and bad things happened and life went on as usual just like everywhere else on earth. And just like everyone else on earth, Cuba was special to some people who called it home.
Then one day, a man with a furry beard came and told Cubans that they could no longer say whatever they wanted and many Cubans fled to a place called Miami, which, just like everywhere else on earth, is paradise to some and hell to others. And then many years later, after these Cubans became Americans and called Miami home because they wanted to live in a place where they could say whatever they wanted, another man who looked like a chimpanzee came and said that they could no longer say whatever they wanted, and just like everywhere else on earth, history repeated itself.
