Wonderful pics! Did you ask the Israeli guy how he can live in Cuba without access to all the modern conveniences he left behind? What about the other Jews who still live there? Did he know about them and/or have anything to do with them?

Just amazing. The cars, the buildings, and especially the portraits. The ones of the guy with the guitar should get an award!

These photos are so good they look fake.

Thanks 8)!

Finally! The FishyStick™

I can't remember if we discussed this with him (Maybe whYME or CITH could chime in here), but he's living the "good life", relatively. He has money, he has a TV, he has food... Plus he goes back to Israel pretty often too.

We'll be discussing the Jews in Cuba in more detail in the next segment.

[Something Fishy]
Once it got dark we began making our way back home for the night. As we were crossing the Malecon, my belt buckle decided it had had enough and popped right off. Being that a 40 oz HydroFlash was on a carabiner off my belt, the next logical thing happened: my pants dropped right down .

So there I was, in the middle of Havana's busiest street, traffic flying past me in both directions, quite literally standing in my underwear. It was like a bad dream come true. Not an experience I'll ever forget, I'll tell you that.

POIDH :P

Apparently keeping onions in fans is a minhag hamedina here:




Someone here doesn't spend to much time in the kitchen I can tell :) . Those Sir, are not onions but Garlic.

BTW that is for an 8 track not a tape.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

 >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
I'm guilty again of reading a Fishy TR before it's completely done!  >:(

You should be BANNED from writing incomplete TRs!  ;D

Excellent excellent stuff! Where was I?  :-\

P.S. I like how I can click on every picture and see the info of which camera settings were used to shoot it.
