Taco Girl I thank you on behalf of all my Cuban friends!!

I only have one question for all of you, "Have you ever heard a mother cry because the only way she could help her son was by leaving him behind?" I have and I would not wish it on anybody. I am just 24yrs old and a born Belizean but I would never wish that on anybody. These cubans "washing up" on our beaches breaks my heart. It is easy to sit at your computer and research facts about Cuba and post them here, but the truth is that is not helping any of them.

Please just remember that when these people get here it is better to just keep it as private as possible.

No one really knows what this people face in going back to Cuba!

I've been reading your Blog, very nice.You are a courageous woman.
I applaud you.
We need your advice on the Cubans landing on our Beach. I live on Ambergris Caye to the south west of Cuba and we have had 5 or 6 boats packed with Cuban refugees land lately and the community is in debate about what we should do. Some say, 'keep it a secret and we might be doing harm to the refugees by making their arrivals public on the internet they could get sent back home.' Others say, 'Make it very public to shame the Cuban government for making its people so unhappy they have to risk their lives in this type of escape.'
You seem to be in the best position to advise us and we would all like very much to hear from you about this issue.

You can read and see it on :

Please let us have an opinion from you.

Looks like Yoani has gotten a prize for her Blog.
she wasn't allowed a visa to accept the award.
"The fact that I am not there is more revealing of the Cuban reality than all of the posts I have written in my blog in all these months," she said. "But some day, it won't take courage to put down in writing all these things we are living today."

Elbert, looks like you cut through the opinions of the non-involved and went to a better source for the answer. Very astute. I will check this young ladies blog when I have a chance.

Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

I didn't read every word in every post, but (there's always a but)i've spent some time in south Florida, and know most of the Cubans in San Pedro. I think we should advise Cuba that pro castro Said (he pinned a medal of FREEDOM?? on that murderers chest)is gone and that the freedom!! loving people of Belize wil no longer be sending his brave sailors back to Cuba, but will in fact welcome them.

I thought it was a scarf, like a bandana.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
