As my last post mentioned, I was recently on holiday in Cuba. The first public building I visited, on my 2nd day in Havana, was the “Museo de la Revolucion”, which is in the grand colonial splendour of the former residence of Fulgencio Batista, the Cuban dictator removed from office by the 1959 Communist revolution which Fidel Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevara led.
The 4 cretins honoured on this wall are Batista, Ronald Reagan (the 40th president of the USA 1981-1989), George H.W. Bush (the 41st president of the USA 1989-1993) and, finally, his son George W. Bush (43rd present of the USA 2001-2009). It is interesting to note that the 42nd president, Democrat Bill Clinton, is not given the dubious honour of being on this wall. But, perhaps most surprisingly, also no John F. Kennedy (35th president of the USA 1961-1963), who tried to get Castro assassinated.
Tucked away in a corner of the ground floor is the following wall. There is nothing like propaganda 🙂
