Join in the FUN.
This year I traveled to Cuba. You know, it’s that little island that’s spitting distance from Florida and should not be visited without special dispensation. I wanted to see it before MacDonald’s arrived. I’m so glad I did. I learned a lot and I met some wonderful people. It seems they like us. Now there’s a change!
I’ll add a short T/F quiz to each post the same as I did last year about Burma, and I’ll post the answers to the questions the following day.
Answer (only one question this time) to your T/F Quiz for I
TRUE: Cuba’s considered part of North America because of where it’s situated geographically, but Latin American when it come to culture. We’re so close geographically, but this is a Latin country from top to bottom. They speak Spanish. Their food has a very Latin flair and their music is all about guitars and rhythm Latin style.
J is for Jugo
|A sugarcane smasher. This juice is called Guarapo|
|Jugo fantastico inside a Cuban orange|
One thing about Cuba is you need lots to drink–cold, fresh, and definitely involving RUM and often smashed cane sugar. So Jugo was the drink of the day. Jugo means juice in Spanish, but the juice was as varied as any Costco shelf in the U.S. I can’t remember the names of all of the local drinks, but I do remember how they tasted. Good.
Your T/F Quiz for J:
1. The U.S. imports tons of Cuban sugar each year.
2. Rum is made from rum berries grown in the Caribbean.
