  1. Hello Regina,

    I wanted to drop you an email to say that in America there is a large growing number of people that are urging our government to help the good people of Cuba become truly free at last.

    I live in San Diego California and can tell you that over the past few months the number of people concerned with human-rights in Cuba is growing every day.

    The people of Cuba will soon become free and the people of America will make that happen. After all it is people that are in the end much bigger and much stronger then any one government.

    Take Care!

  2. I would like to support you ,because our ideas are the same, but knowing that you belonged to the hated, detested and abhorrent G2…I can’t, how to believe an ex-member of the most hated ,despicable and shameful organizations in Cuba?….sorry…..blood is in your hands…how dared you?…….

  3. Estoy investigando la batalla de Cuito Cuanavale, Angola para el período del agosto de 1987 al abril de 1988 y busco cualquier ayuda para la introducción a los veteranos angolanos o cubanos de Cuito.

  4. Across the world we read your blog, and peolple like you and Yoani just to name two are making a difference in how the rest of the world sees the REAL Cuba.

  5. Hello Regina,
    Love your blog!
    I have been trying to look for NGOs in Cuba geared towards sustainable community development to intern/volunteer with.
    You are a Cuban native, live there and know the country better than expat writers/tourists. Could you please advise?

  6. I have just found your blog and look forward to reading it all. I look forward to learning about Cuba directly.

  7. I enjoy your blog, of course being a long time visitor to your world my perspective is very different then a cuban. You willingness to be somewhat subjective is refreshing. The truth beig that most Cubans are living at a reasonable condition relative to the rest of Latin America on very few resources. Futher direction in opening the small private sector and civil liberties and Cuba I believe, could be a leading social democract star in the twenty first century
