  • Gracias! All this as a result of the leadership of the Castro family regime for fifty five years. Their generosity towards the common people exceeds imagination. Few others in this world can dream of the privileges bestowed by Socialismo. How others must long for a bodega in their communities. Immigration figures into Cuba demonstrate the attraction of Socialismo.
