Heartbroken in Cuba

This was May of 2001. I had just fallen in love with a boy long distance and this was the first time we’d been together in about 3 months. The sad thing about it? He didn’t feel the same any more and broke up with me on the first day in Havana. 90 miles from the US and I was completely trapped with no communication back home, sharing a hotel room with this fucker. 18 days in hell is basically what it was. Fortunately, this was a college trip so I had some other folks around to drink amazing rum with and smoke the best cigars on earth. Someday I hope to get back to Cuba and enjoy it with new eyes.
