I'm totally open-minded on subjects though and would never want to come across like i favour any of this historical figures, just simply intrigued by the events, that's all. I wouldn't buy a che t-shirt as i understand the aspect of hypocricy, but i do want one.
Che is something of an icon ,his face was on T shirts in my youth when I had hair down to my waist and was hitch hiking around the globe.
People forget ,or don't know that he was in charge of execution squads ,in the early days of the revolution.
Guevara's hands were as blood stained as Batista's.
Haven't been to Cuba yet ,but will do at some point.
I want to see Hemingway's finca in Havana, that's a must for me.
Kid Chocolate, Kid Gavilan, Jose Napoles. Must be something in the water.
The language is Portugese ,which is incomprehensible to me,but a fascinating place.

Now ,about Ronaldo leaving Man U
