A secondary story
[quote]
October 21, 2011: The first Chinese Navy ship to ever visit Cuba docked
there today. It was a Hospital Ship, making a world tour of places that
need some modern medicine. Cuba has plenty of doctors, but much less
medicine and medical technology. So the Chinese ship's visit is
appreciated. With the disappearance of Russia as an ally two decades,
Cuban communists are also happy to see another communist superpower
coming to their aid, and sticking it to the United States.

This is going to make life more interesting.

Hmmmmm... I wonder if this has anything to do with Hugo Chavez' getting
cancer treatment there? If Cuba is so backward medically, what does that
tell you about Venezuela?

I've read that Venezolanas often have a certain surgical procedure done in
lieu of a quinceanera. Hint: Venezolanas win a lot of beauty contests!

well, having to do (and being also annoyed...) with an Italo-Venezuelan
mestizo whose is beautiful below the neck, I can fully agree....

In private, then. I've found a couple of videos I'd like to ask you about.
Yes, I know about the deplorable effect that the Dwarf has had on Italian
television. But beautiful women are always interesting, if one doesn't
degrade them.
