I know at least some a2kers who have connections, and would like to hear more.
The cuban girl in my 6th grade class in the Chicago area, Lucile Calderera, (or is it Calderero?) if I remember. Very smart. I remember liking her name for the sounds that were kind of new to me. This was still in the early 50's and I was still a shy person, but I think we at least talked a some at recess time, when we weren't playing softball.
Around the same time, the neighbors in a house down our suburban Evanston street went to Cuba for vacation, dates and details unknown, pre Castro. I do remember them reporting having some kind of completely wonderful time. Battista time, I take it, in retrospect. I've read about Battista, but now some years ago. I remember not being a fan.
Sometime later, at the exact day I turned 21, I had my first drink, this with my birthday celebrating friends. No, it wasn't a Cuba libra, but once I had one of those I liked them, including the name. That was just about Kennedy time, with more to come. I remember my confusion - invasion?
On the other hand, people were desperately escaping. anywhich way.
