I was born in the Republic of Cuba, a nation comprising the main island as well as Isla de la Juventud and several minor archipelagos. Cuba is located in the northern Caribbean where the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean meet up.

Years later I was recruited by George HW Bush to lead the electronic Bay of Pigs named TV Martí which has been ineffective.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I should point out that I was born in Cuba. However, when I was there last there was no Internet.

For the first time since the 1950's, when The Castro Brothers launched their Cuban Revolution, the communist island will no longer have a Castro leading it.

The Cuban Revolution was an armed revolt conducted by Fidel and Raul Castro's revolutionary 26th of July Movement and its allies against the authoritarian government of another Cuban dictator named Fulgencio Batista.

The new president is 57-year-old Miguel Diaz-Canel. He is the chosen leader of an unfulfilled generation finally coming to maturity after the Castro era.

As some of you may know, I was born in Cuba and would love to go back someday. Although I have not been allowed to return yet, the news and information content coming out of my beautiful island still interests me. I have now reached out to one government official to once again try to visit.

520 is the abbreviation for "I Love You" in net and SMS use in the Chinese-speaking world. 520 CUBA, my birthplace. It is an example of extensive use of numerical digits for their similar pronunciation of daily expressions in Chinese. In this case, 5 means "I", 2 means "love", 0 means "you".

It is also Cuban Independence Day, but everyone knows Cuba is still not able to make that claim. Cuba was recovering from a war with Spain and endured a period of American military occupation. While this date is a celebration, Cuba was hamstrung by the cruel irony of independence without freedom.
