Gusanito went to see Radiohead on Monday and was showing me some pictures from the outdoor show at the Cruzan Amphitheater.
Looking through some of the concert pics on Flikr, we came across this one:
Man! what do we Cubans need to do to get this kind of world-wide awareness and understanding of our plight for freedom?
Should we all convert to Buddhism? Hmmm…some culinary sacrifices for la Patria…wouldn’t affect me since I’ve been a vegetarian for years, but the rest of you guys….¡que ba!
It would also mean trading in our guayaberas for an orange toga…our cigars for incense…our passionate “discussions” for meditation…our espiritismo for re-incarnation…our “la gloria” for Nirvana…
But most importantly, it would require the Cuban priests to take to the streets and confront the regime in a self immolating act of sacrifice. Instead we get the church humbly asking for a little space in the airwaves.
Ahh, maybe the price is too high. Still, me muero de la envidia.
