Buena Vista Social Club

A very good video. I wish I could post the entire thing.

The scenes of Cuba remind me of all of these stories I was told by a family I taught. They where a family that we visited when we worked to hard and needed some water. Stories of Cuba of course came up. And I had to imagine this strange land. And with these videos I can see it. With some absolutely beautiful music.

I guess I should add that this was in my Spanish class. So I understand what they are saying mostly. When I got confused I would look down at the Subtitles. Accaisionally they became a crutch I needed to stop using, and other times they helped me understand something even better.
The guy with the cigar is my favorite character. I like his car.
