Thirteen years after leaving Cuba, I went back to where I grew up. My parents’ family is there. The ones who remain. During my years of absence many of them have emigrated. My grandmother Marina has just turned 85 – a month before Fidel Castro, the leader she so admires. Now she lives with three of her children and two grandchildren
