The El Paso Diary is written by José Pertierra--an attorney who represents the government of Venezuela in its request for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles. Pertierra´s journals describe the testimony, evidence, legal skirmishes, quirks and follies of this very historic trial that features for the first time the close collaboration of the United States government with Cuban authorities to prosecute an ex CIA agent who is one of the masterminds of the fifty-year old dirty war against Cuba.

Articles of Havana
The Cuban capital played host to the successful 19th Habano Festival (February 27-March 3), the largest annual international event for lovers of premium hand rolled cigars, which had as its main protagonists the H. Upmann, Montecristo and Quai D’Orsay brands.
HAVANA is once again the scene of dialogue and understanding. This afternoon, February 12, after an affectionate greeting, the leaders of the Catholic and Russian Orthodox Churches held a private meeting and signed a joint statement, in a ceremony witnessed by President Raúl Castro.
Festival president Iván Giroud commented in his opening remarks that the event occurs this year in a different environment, at a time when the world is facing new challenges, threats and uncertainty, in which organizers have as their first priority protecting Latin American cinema, implementing policies of promotion, preservation and development.
Only on the Malecón, where the sea breeze which lords over Havana is best enjoyed, is it possible to withstand the scorching heat of the tantalizing conga music, queen of carnival, the largest mass celebration of the year. Over these hot August weekends (7-9 and 14-16), Havana residents are enjoying the city’s traditional carnival celebrations; some simply reclining on the Malecón, while others sit in the bleachers, expectantly awaiting the dance troupes as they parade past the judges, while the most eager seek out the designated dance areas.
Shadows have a magical quality. The ever-changing shapes inspire creativity and imagination and are a constant source of fantasy. There are even those who argue that shadow theatre is the precursor to cinema: the first method based on the reproduction of movements and actions on a screen; of course, using different techniques.
Today, the Rutas y Andares (Walks and Wonderings) program enables us to travel through time as we tour the city’s streets, squares, statues and get to know the men and women who clean, care for and love it, discovering the various marvels amassed in its Historic Center.
The ballet will also be presented at the Marti Theater in Havana. The renowned concert pianist will open the gala by playing the two most famous compositions of the Hail Mary, the version by Charles Gounod and Johann Sebastian Bach, and the one by Franz Schubert, pieces which are usually included in his concerts. “The light in Cuban eyes” portrays real pictures and interweaves the plasticity of dance with the loose Afro-Cuban rhythms.
Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić arrived in Havana yesterday, May 18, for a two-day official visit, and was received by Rogelio Sierra, deputy minister of Foreign Affairs. Speaking to the press at José Martí International Airport, Nikolić reaffirmed the excellent relations between his country and Cuba. The first Serbian President to visit the island since the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia, Nikolić commented that he admires Cuba’s independence and that the friendship between the two countries remains strong. Prior to his election as President in 2012, the Serbian leader served as head of the Parliamentary Friendship with Cuba Group.
Air France airline will propose an additional flight Paris-Havana, with which flights to that destination will increase to 11 per week, it was reported today. The offer will be available as of October this year, according to a statement released by the entity. The company operates a daily flight from the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport in a Boeing 777-300 with a capacity for 468 passengers during the summer season, reinforced by four additional weekly flights in winter 2015.
As part of the U.S.-Cuba regatta Havana Challenge in this capital, five Hobbie Cat 16 sailboats are competing today at the Havana coastline in an unprecedented tourist competition for 50 years.
They are very quickly and unpredictable sailboats that will allow more than a sports event, a symbol of friendship between U.S. and Cuban citizens. The arrival this weekend to this capital of the Havana Challenge regatta, in addition of being a challenge to ocean currents, foster friendship, as the organizers from both countries conceive it.
