Auras de Cuba nuestro amor desea:
Cuba es tu corazón, Cuba es mi cielo,
Cuba en tu libro mi palabra sea.
Myself (distractedly): José Martí, Cuban poet and essayist, patriot and martyr. I've dashed off my own English version if you're interested.
Prodnose (unenthused): Ummmm ...
Myself: Cuba unite us, on foreign soil
Cuba the heartbeat, let love uncoil
Cuba your centre, Cuba my sky
Cuba in your book, my word, my sigh
A treasured development of 2023, at least for me, has been the emergence of a monthly night out for Jane, Ben and I (plus Simona when she can make it). Generally we alternate a pizza at Corleone with an action movie at Wimbledon Odeon followed by Mexican food at Wahaca.
No reason, given my diagnosis, not to punch it up a little. I've long fancied the view overlooking the stage from the Camden Jazz Café mezzanine restaurant. Hey Presto! A table for four is booked; Havana Música with Carlos Miguel Y Su Dimension de Cuba on Saturday 28th October.
I found this YouTube video looking for Carlos Miguel. Pretty much what we will see from our vantage point I think.
