Catching up

Last year, I did a little round up of Latina-inspired Thanksgiving dishes.

I finally saw Che, starring Benicio Del Toro and couldn’t stop thinking about the real El Che all weekend. Although Benicio Del Toro does such a great job it’s hard to separate him from the character.

This year Michael Casey examined how Che has become a global brand in Che’s Afterlife: The Legacy of an Image. Interestingly he notes how Che’s image has been used on everything from condom wrappers to NeoNazi propaganda, which sort of breaks my heart. There’s also an interesting article here on Cuba from a Cuban writer: Travels by Taxi

For more reading (this time fictional) also check out: “Ruins by Achy Obejas is a beautifully written, heart-wrenching novel about the dignity of one man in the face of harsh daily deprivations and the slow deterioration of his dreams. Set in Cuba in 1994, it tells the story of Usnavy, a man fated to live his life under the shadow of the United States and yet determined to live as a proud Cuban and to hold faith in the revolution that Che Guevara promised.”

And finally someone talks about the cable and internet connection monopoly in upper Manhattan via gigaom.com
