hi, my name is Leslie not common in Cuba for a guy and not even a "Cuban" name but every one calls me by my Last name Isla like Island of Cuba. my family is a mixture of DNA from various countries and nationalities but mostly in Cuba we come from Spain, Jewish, English, French and even Cuban Aborigines. you'll be amazed how many of us descend from Spanish as well as African or Chinese. I worked as a Guide and I have been working as a bicicle taxi rider for a 3 years period since a few month ago I've got to go to surgical process to take out the gall bladder so now I can only go on tours walking or by car so far. i f you want to discover Cienfuegos and other parts of Cuba in the process we will learn together. I have visited most parts in Cuba going from Pinar del Rio through Granma and stayed in Havana giving tours around different cities in Cuba mostly in conventions gatherings and church reunions as a translator and in the cities as a tour guide.
