The Havana Malecon Is Lonely


Photo Feature by Juan Suarez

HAVANA TIMES – The Havana malecon seawall is solitary. The avenue is empty and its wall is guarded by police to avoid any accident. Hurricane Irma caused great damage to its foundations and huge craters are seen on its sidewalks. Meanwhile, the neighbors are recovering from that fatal catastrophe.

    “… What would you do o solve the problem Mr Wong?…”

    That’s the big question, isn’t it. And it’s a discussion that has engaged countless people over decades of time and generated an avalanche of opinions. There’s enough books, publications, academic papers, forum posts etc. to fill a library.

    What I wouldn’t do is to keep posting simple fallacies and impossibilities like you are doing.

    Mr Wong. Surely their must be some home grown professionals who could instruct /teach young people ? Surely the government has some emergency funds available? Or get the foreign travel companies to stump up extra funding if they wish to continue to encourage tourists to holiday on the island. Their has to be an answer that is acceptable to everyone to this financial mess. What would you do o solve the problem Mr Wong?

    So you’re saying to trust the Cuban people by bringing in a pile of foreign professionals and experts to fix the country?

    Please remind me who magically pays for all this foreign assistance?

    As soon as Mr Castro learns to trust the people of Cuba with a say in the rebuilding and development of the country, it is only then that Cuba will develop. Mr Castro trust your people and they will not let you down, bring in professionals in the building trade, plasterers, plumbers, electricians, bricklayers, bring these people in so that they can teach people, offer apprenticeships to those who wish to learn, invest in the youth of the country and they will not let you down. The Cuban people are very proud of their country and of being Cuban!
