Last night I talked by phone to Paco Puentes. He is in Panama and I am in Raleigh, NC. Paco is the brother of Laurentino (Tino,) who passed away a few months ago in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. We all went to Benito's school and used to play baseball at La Asunción park (late forties and early fifties.) At night we would hang around La Asunción cafeteria, at Calzado de Luyanó and Juana Alonso.
Baseball was our favorite subject; the Cuban winter league or the Major leagues.

Paco gave me un update of many of our friends from our childhood in Cuba, now living in Miami.
