2002 - Postcard to Kings from HHUs in Cuba

2002 found HH and Jean in Cuba and HH found a job that did not appeal to him. Glad we were born in the USA!  This postcard was sent to Roberta and Sid.  Transcription follows.
HHUs Cuba tobacco postcard to Kings - April 14, 2002
Hi - Glad we are not working in a Cuban cigar factory - they are paid from $1 to $1.50 each.  The boxes are pretty.
Now in western Cuba - the Yosemite area of Cuba and fly later today to Santiago - the eastern end - near where Columbus landed in 1492.
Lots of fruit, black beans, rice and chicken.  You see tomorrow's meal on foot.  [The chickens are running around?]
Love, Mother and Dad

From HH: Catherine, that cigar making place really reeked of tobacco. Another memory of Cuba was the frequency of small band groups trying to make a buck and they were LOUD.
