5:50 p.m. 71 degrees.  Buena Vista Social Club on the stereo.  If you’ve never heard the Buena Vista Social Club you’ve REALLY missed out.  Here’s a link to one of their best songs, Chan Chan, featuring Rubén González, Ibrahim Ferrar, and Compay Segundo (Cuban legends) to give you the feel…so that you’re down too!

Update on the Patio
  • Afro-Cuban music is the best! If you like this you would like Mamborama…..a white guy (with lots of soul) went to Cuba and recorded with some amazing local talent.
    I am waiting for the last two books you recommended to arrive….
    Have a great day!
