All'improvviso la mia camera da letto è invasa dalle zanzare, da qualche giorno sto dormendo poco e male perché circondato da "zzzzzz" e tormentato da punture.

#ThrowbackThursday – My Family in the U.S.

My family was separated before we could all come together in the United States. Castro had kept my grandparents and my sister and me in Cuba and so my brother and parents were in the U.S. before we could join them.
