We're famous!

We are f-a-m-o-u-s.
And, as cubanita de pura cepa, I'm gonna brag about it!!!

Uno, dos y tres, que paso más chévere, que paso más chévere, el de mi conga es...
(This is a typical song from the Cuban carnival's, and I'm singing it because I'm celebrating the spreading of my blog content through the Cuban blogosphere in the United States.)

Here is what Marc Marsferrer, a fellow journalist and blogger from Uncommon Sense, has to say about us, and all the Cuban mommy's blogs waving all over.

He wrote: "Some of us blogueros may by "rabid," but not these ladies — unless, of course, they are writing about cooking or raising their kids. They never run out of great stories. Their humor and their passion are infectious.

And I thank him a lot for his words.

It all came up while I was reading an article at Babalú about Sicko, the new Michael Moore production, a few days ago. And I just started writing my thoughts about him and his recent work —that I haven't seen yet and I don't know if I ever will.

This blog was created —and still is— to be an online memory for my son. But the issues about Cuba are too close, too fresh... they still hurt me so much... That's why I've just realized that the journalist inside me will never be able to turn that page about Cuba when writing.

That's how the category "La Esquina Caliente" was born in this blog. And it's not exactly to write or read about baseball.

So, whenever your are mentally ready know the truth about the life in Cuba, please, come back here. I've commited myself to do my best to spread my humble experiences.
