    Hi Conner,
    Just found your website and love your work. Been to Cuba 8 times as a Canadian tourist, 4 times in Airbnb’s across the country and just love it, can’t wait for coronavirus none sense to be over so I can get back. Question for you, well more of a confession of sorts, when you mention “la luchita”, the daily struggle, it is exactly that that makes Cuba and it’s people so inspiring and addictive to me. And, throughout this pandemic I have found myself feeling motivated by the fact that no matter how bad my struggles are with the pandemic here in Canada the Cuban people have it worse. I still speak with one of the family’s we have stayed with in Havana and they are always upbeat and have a great attitude, despite experiencing things we could only think of in our nightmares. Just how resourceful and positive the Cuban people are, especially through this pandemic has made me love the country even more. Can’t wait to come back, reading your posts will have to be my Cuba dose for the time being – keep up the good work!

    • Hola. Thanks for reading and commenting. Yes, Cubans are extraordinarily resourceful, resilient and have an outlook on life, even during extraordinarily trying times, that is inspiring. Nevertheless, I’ve been asking myself (even before COVID but now more than ever, especially since the current US administration has determined it will strangle Cuba to death any way it can) if there is a limit to resilience? Things are very very tough here now and we are doing the old 12 step here: One Day at a Time. Hope you and others who love this place can get back sooner rather than later. Stay safe!
