Playa Giron (Bay of Pigs): Lunchtime, 1970

"We had lunch at a workers' resort, and a Cuban entertainer is shown dancing on a beam. Throughout our time in Cuba we were treated to many different kinds of Cuban music and dance, from the National Ballet's Yoruba dancing and a China band, to the camp 'cultural event' dances and the continual late night Cuban-American conga drumming sessions. We were awakened in the mornings by a loudspeaker blasting our wake up song 'De Pie (On Your Feet),' and listened to a string of Cuban and American music during free time in the camp. One popular radio program was an English language Cuban program called 'Cards and Letters,' in which Americans in the US would send in their questions about Cuba, to be answered by the Cuban host."
