-Sweet things-

“Do you eat too?”

Suddenly, I was surprised to find this word.

Looking back, a giant man who weighs 100 kilograms

Haagen-Dazs, which is as small as a bucket

I used to crush the cookies into ice cream.

Socialism in the Caribbean over the last few years

The country of Cuba has become a hot topic in Japan.

I have been many times since around 1993

I went to Cuba and took pictures.

Only because I really like Cuba.

Nowadays, the number of people who say “Cuba is good” is increasing, but when I first started going,

“Why are you going to Cuba?”

“Can you come back alive?”

(This is a bit overkill …) I was even told.

Feeling cold on your spine, leave the airport and look for a taxi to get to the city.

There are always rip-off taxis in every country, and they are baptized.

I started negotiations with the intention, but there was no such person.

I had a very fresh surprise in my overseas experience.

The structure of the country of socialism remained more intense at that time.

I felt that it was a bit different from capitalism.

There was such a thing at the hotel.

In the morning, I put the tip on my pillow and went out,

By the time I returned to the room, the maid came all the way to the room,

Report that your money had fallen to the bedside,

I even tried to return the money.

The biggest attraction of this country is not the blue sea, the sky, or the variety of musicality.

It is not a historic cityscape designated as a World Heritage Site,

It’s all about the people who control it.

It is of various races (Spanish, African, etc.) that have migrated from all over the world.

It is made up of Americans, former Soviet Unioners, Chinese, etc.)

Living in a sense of crisis (American blockade of the economy) every day

I think that’s why I’m living hard day by day.

The faces of the people who pointed the camera all shined their white teeth and jumped in proudly.

How deeply you can interact with the socialist people in the southern country

I didn’t expect it at that time.

The first thing the Cubans taught me was a smile.

He said he was a giant weighing over 100 kilograms.

“Eat more and more sweets every day.

Cookies, chocolates, puddings, mangoes …

Then people will naturally have a gentle face! “

Is that true …
