La Gloria Cubana

I heard on the radio this morning that Castro is stepping down as leader of Cuba. Not like that's going to cause a great change in international policy or anything, as his brother will be stepping up to continue Fidel's policies.

In other news, I like to listen to the radio at the end of the day when I go to bed. Usually, I listen to talk/news -- listening to people talk like that often helps me fall asleep. The past couple of weeks, I've been tuning around the shortwave dial instead of listening to the local FM or AM stations. I've pretty much settled on 6.000MHz, Radio Havana Cuba as my station of choice now. It's fun to hear US news items portrayed from an anti-US perspective. Also, when they play music, it's usually enjoyable Cuban-based blues. I can't tune in the station very well every night, but when I can, I do.
