I remember the first thing I saw when getting off the plane in Cuba was a wall surrounding the tarmac upon which was written "SOCIALISMO OU MUERTE" in large block letters. Welcome to Cuba!

Actually, that person is Luis Posada Carriles, a terrorist who the Cubans say was CIA trained to bomb a Cubana flight.

But even if you don't know who the guy is, you gotta love a government doing a Bush/Hitler comparison.

These photos evoked some powerful memories.

These were summer 2003, in Havana, Pinar del Rio, and Cienfuegos.
