Let's go that way. The village is beyond those trees.
I saw 'em over there a while ago. Put it over there. His house is there on the right. She lives far from there. From there one could see perfectly. He says we should go that way. It's a town of people. My dear child! Lo siento en el alma. I'm terribly sorry. Lo voy a consultar con la almohada.
I'm going to sleep on it i. They rented a house. Rooms for rent. They were sitting around the table. It cost about thirty pesos. We have to make some changes in our plans. He showed signs of great emotion. There were disorders all over the country. His coming changed our lives completely. Don't get excited; it's nothing. What's that very tall building? He talked to a high official of the Treasury Department. Prices are very high in this store. Don't talk so loud. He returned very late at night. They live in the upper story of that house. The house is on top of the hill.
We've overlooked many important facts. We stopped along the way to have lunch. The soldiers halted at the entrance to the town. I don't feel well at such a high altitude. The lighting's poor in this part of the city. The street lamps don't give enough light. Can you light the way? He didn't raise his eyes from the book. They revolted against the government. He stole the money. In the summer it dawns earlier than in the winter.
That guy's very embittered. He makes life miserable for everyone around him. He couldn't stand the bitterness of the coffee. His misfortunes caused him great bitterness. They soon became friends. He made friends with John. He got acquainted there in a short time. We talked with the owner of the house. Don't tell the boss. He likes to talk of love. He's found a new love. Yes, darling. He has too much pride. He was peeved by what you said.
I want an enlargement of this photograph. They furnished the house very luxuriously. Do you think the road's wide enough for cars? This suit's too big for me. What's the width of the material? We took a long hike up to the summit. You're a great gadabout, my boy. It's too far to walk. The train began to move. Is that clock going? I've been chasing around all day. He didn't win the prize, but he came close to it. The child's going on seven. Move on! Go on! The jockey fell right by the rail. The liveliness of the gathering surprised me. Don't be a jackass!
Let's encourage the players. His arrival pepped up the party. I'm urging him to come with us. He was in good spirits. She cheered him up because he was depressed. It gets dark at five now. I'm anxious to meet her. The year before last we went to Europe. I told you that before. This street used to have another name. Let's eat before we go. They left before we arrived. Above all, don't forget to write me.
He lent me 30 pesos. They advanced the date of the party. They arrived half an hour early. He got ahead of me. She likes to dress in an old-fashioned way. She does whatever comes into her mind. Lo hago porque se me antoja. I do it because I take a notion to. Happy New Year. I'm twenty years old. Put out the light. The lights went out. He was surprised by the sudden appearance of his friend. That's a separate question. Put this package aside. Don't get off while the vehicle's in motion. They were grieved by the illness of their aunt.
We were worried because we weren't getting any news. He can hardly walk. Let me know as soon as he comes. He got very depressed after his failure. They crushed all resistance. They flattened his nose. They flattened themselves against the wall. He's very studious. They put a coat of paint on the chair. How much do you bet? I bet I get there before you. Rest your foot on that step. No one supported his motion. I second the motion. He's leaning on a cane. I have great respect for him. Don't walk so fast; we'll get there on time. Please hurry; we're late already. Tighten this screw.
This collar's too tight. He pressed down on the suitcase to close it. He gripped my hand. The runner sprinted on the last lap. There was such a crowd that nobody saw anything. He does everything very quickly. I don't approve of his conduct. Did you pass your math exam?
The boss had to advance him some money. She made use of all the left-overs. Don't let him take advantage of you. Don't go too near the fire. You're aiming too low to hit the target. Jot it down in your notebook. They drained their glasses. The situation worries me very much. Don't worry. Hurry up, child! Hurry up! I bought that scarf we looked at yesterday.
I like this book better than that one. He isn't here. I'll wait for you in here. From now on we'll have to spend less money. Come this way. Wet firewood doesn't burn well. I was burned up by what he said. His arguments don't convince me. I didn't like the plot of the movie. They armed the people. The machine has to be assembled. They made a big racket last night. The mules balked halfway there. He armed himself with a pistol. He built up a good business in a short time. He's always making a mess of things. He's always broke at the end of the month. Three pages have been torn out.
We saw the car start. On a sudden impulse I returned to my home town. This car has a self-starter. What a heel! He gets everything because he's a bootlicker. He was dragged along by the current. Be careful, your coat's dragging. They crawled out of the cave. Is everything arranged for the trip? I think they'll fix the radio this afternoon. Tidy up a bit and we'll go to the movies. How can I manage to finish on time? We did it according to your instructions. Do you want to rent your house? I want to rent a room. You'll be sorry for this.
They live two flights up. The bedrooms are upstairs. It's past the square. He looked him up and down. From above one could see the river. The car was going up. Let's go up. The hat was dirty around the top. He doesn't mind risking his life. If we don't take risks we'll never get anything done. Don't put the table so close to the wall. Give me a hand! Don't throw things out the window. That rope has to be coiled. They were trampled by the crowd. That man ruined them completely. He was ruined by that business.
Are you interested in art? Fine arts. He presents his arguments with great skill. Read the article on page two. They sell sporting goods. Let's roast the chestnuts. It's roasting in this room. The balloon went up slowly. He was promoted three times in one year. The bill amounted to pesos. He refused the food with disgust.
Those things disgust me. Don't come near me; you're filthy. He turns up his nose at everything. He fastened the horse's pack with a rope. I assure you everything will be ready on time. He maintains it's true. The baggage is insured. First make sure the information's correct. He took out accident insurance. That's the way it is.
You must do it this way. And so they decided to act immediately. I don't say it without reason. I'll let you know as soon as I get there. Your attendance isn't necessary. I took care of him during his illness. Were you present at the meeting? The wash'll have to be put in the sun to dry. They were taking a sun bath on the beach.
He put his head out of the window. It's forbidden to lean out of windows. He amazes everybody by his cleverness. I'm amazed that you say that. He assumed full responsibility. What's the subject of that play? Don't meddle in my affairs. Your screams frightened me. She's frightened by loud noises. If we go this way we'll catch up with 'em.

We're in a blind alley. There was a calm after the storm. He takes his time when he works. The Ten Years' War in Cuba , which was the island's first major struggle for independence from Spain, brought many refugees to Florida. The largest exile community developed in Key West. Simultaneously, the tobacco industry in Cuba was hampered by tariffs.
Beginning in Readers, or lectores, read to the workers from novels, newspapers and political tracts. Cigar workers, as a result, were very well informed, and were vital in educating others and providing support for the struggle for Cuban independence. In the later part of the nineteenth century, Tampa displaced Key West as the leading center for cigar making.
Americans became involved in the effort, running guns and supplies to the rebels. Jacksonville also served as a major training center, housing more than 12, soldiers in what became known as "Camp Cuba Libre. Americans and Cuban Ameri- cans flocked to Cuba looking for economic opportunity, and many Cuban immigrants came to Florida. The arrival of aviation had a profound impact on the relationship between Florida and Cuba.
The first regularly scheduled air mail service between Key West and Havana began in As years passed, tourists took advantage of hourly flights from Miami and Key West to Havana, seeking nightlife and exotic beaches. Cubans came to Florida to shop for American goods. Cuban music, dances like the cha-cha-cha. Once again, Florida became a headquarters for conspiracy and a destination for exiles.
Another revolution in brought Fidel Castro to power. As he established his dictator- ship, thousands of Cubans fled to Florida and particularly Miami, forever changing the face of Florida. Commercial flights from Cuba ended in Today the exile community is more than a million strong, as the exodus from the island continues on boats and make-shift rafts. As throughout Florida's history, the lives of Cubans and Floridians are profoundly fused. In Miami, Tampa, Key West and throughout Florida, Cubans have indelibly made their mark on culture, politics and everyday life.
La conexion Cuba-Florida es mucho mas antigua que la proclamacion del estado de la Florida. De hecho, se remonta a la exploracion de la peninsula por los espanoles. A principios de la exploracion y colonizacion, Cuba sirvio como sede administrativa del Nuevo Mundo. En Cuba se construyeron las embarcaciones y se tripularon.
Luego de una serie de fracasos en los intentos de colonizar la Florida. Hernando de Soto. Su esposa, Isabel de Bobadilla, permanecio en La Habana sirviendo en calidad de gobernadora. De hecho, fue la primera gobemadora de un territorio de nuestro hemisfeno occidental. A medida que progreso la exploracion y asentamiento en la Florida, Espaha continuo usando La Habana como sede de gobiemo.
Los tripulantes de los muchos navios que navegaban entre Cuba y la Florida fueron espanoles, indios y negros, antepasados de algunos cubanos. En el siglo diecisiete, barcos mercantes cubanos frecuentaban los puertos del Colfo de Mexico septentrional, por ejemplo San Marcos de Apalache, al sur de Tallahassee. Estos barcos trafan provisiones para las misiones espaholas en la zona, ejemplo de ellas es San Luis de Talimali.
Los terratenientes criollos y espanoles en la Florida realizaban un floreciente comercio en ron cubano, mercancias espaholas y mexicanas, maiz, frijoles y pieles de venado. En cuando Espaha cedio la Florida a Inglatena la mayoria de los espanoles, indios y negros fueron evacuados a La Habana. Un numero de cubano americanos son descendientes de estos floridanos. La Guerra de los Diez Anos , la primera gran lucha de importancia contra el dominio espanol, trajo como consecuencia una oleada de refugiados a la Florida. La comunidad mas numerosa de exiliados se asento en Cayo Hueso.
Mientras estos acontecimientos ocurn'an. A consecuencia, en , los fabricantes de tabacos y los obreros vinieron a la Florida, trayendo consigo las galeras, un nuevo tipo de organizacion industria n las tabacaleras Ins lectores entretenian a los trabajadores leyendoles novelas, penodicos o articulos de temas politicos. Tampa reemplazo a Cayo Hueso como centra principal de la industna del tabaco. Fue la epoca en que la lucha emancipadora de Cuba continuo alentada por los esfuerzos de Jose Marti.
Los norte- americanos tambien se involucraron en la lucha mdepen- dentista cubana llevandole armas y provisiones a los rebeldes. Cuando dMaine estallo en la bahia de La Habana, el congreso norteamen- cano le declaro la guerra a Espaha. Las tropas norte- americanas fueron acantonadas en Tampa y el Hotel Tampa Bay se convirtio en cuartel general. Jacksonville tambien sirvio de centra de entrenamiento y albergo a mas de 12, soldados y el campamento se conocio con el nombre de "Campamento Cuba Libre.
Muchos norteamericanos y cubano americanos fueron a Cuba en busqueda de oportunidades economicas al igual que muchos cubanos emigraron a la Florida. El advenimiento de la aviacion tuvo un profundo impacto en las relaciones cubano floridanas. El primer servicio de correo aereo entre Cayo Hueso y La Habana comenzo en Con el pasar de los ahos.

They, along with some eighty Indian families, relocated to Cuba in when Britain took control of Florida. From time to time, Cubans and Bahamians visited the island and surrounding waters to fish, salvage wrecks and cut lumber. In , the island was granted to Juan Pablo Salas by Spain, who sold it to American businessman John Simonton for 12, that same year. The transaction took place in a cafe in Havana, and thus began the modern history of Key West. With great skill and ideal conditions, Cubans transformed the cigar industry in Key West into a major enterprise.
Small shops called chinchaks sprang up all over town. By the s, 29 factories produced more than 62 million cigars annually. The economy prospered and the population soared with the success of the cigar industry in Key West. Key West Cubans provided vital support for the war of indepen- dence from Spain. Led by intellectuals and entrepreneurs like Jose Dolores Poyo and Juan Maria Reyes, the key became a haven for Cubans to unite and plot against colonial rule. The cigar industry served as the backbone of the revolutionary movement. Cigar workers contributed a portion of their meager salaries to the insurgency.
A charismatic speaker and a visionary, Marti visited the cigar factories to rally support and raise funds for a new war. Gunrunners from Key West supplied munitions for Cuban and American troops while the exile community in Key West continued to provide financial and emotional support. Ultimately, Cuba was liberated from Spain and the exile community in Key West celebrated the establishment of a new Republic of Cuba.
Tourism created another important connection between Cuba and Florida on the advent of the aviation industry. From the late s to the s, Cuba became a popular vacation spot. Charmed by Cuba's tropical beaches, festive ambiance, and no Prohibition, thousands of American tourists traveled weekly to the exotic island. Many Americans eventually made Cuba their permanent home and invested in profitable businesses such as the sugar industry. By , there were approximately 25, Americans living in Cuba.
Today, Key West is home to thousands of first, second and third generation Cuban Americans who have not only assimilated into American culture, but also have retained many of their customs and traditions. Their influence can be seen today in the island's architecture, food, Spanish language newspapers, radio and television stations.

Los cubanos aportaron sus conocimientos y transformaron la industria del tabaco en Cayo Hueso en un negocio floreciente. De la noche a la manana, aparecieron pequenas fabncas llamadas chinchales asi como grandes tabacaleras. En la decada de , habia 29 fabncas que producian mas de 62 millones de tabacos al ano. La expansion de esta industria trajo prosperidad y el aumento de la poblacion.

El advenimiento de la aviacion trajo consigo un nuevo vinculo entre Cuba y la Flonda, el tunsmo.

Today, many of the small wooden cigar workers' houses, called shotgun houses, remain in this area bordered by Amelia, Duval, Catherine, and Whitehead Streets. Two plots in the cemetery are particularly significant to Cuban American history: the Monument to the Cuban Martyrs and the monument to the soldiers killed on the 'SS Mime. The monument to the USS Maine, a Naval burial site, is dedicated to the victims of the battleship's explosion in Havana Harbor on February 15, which sparked off the United States' entry into the Spanish-American War and brought about Cuba's indepen- dence from Spain.
Key West National Historic District The one square mile radius of historical Old Town Key West, approximately a block district, contains one of the most important concentrations of wooden buildings in Florida. Key West throughout much of the 19th century was Florida's largest city, particularly during the period when the cigar making industry was at its peak. Historically, the island city maintained close relations with Cuba and much of Key West's architecture, culture, cuisine, commerce and industry were influenced by the mile proximity to Cuba.
Many of the cigar factories and cigar workers' houses are in this district. Also, neighborhoods with a distinctive Latin ambiance such as the to block of White Street, the block of Virginia Street and other Cuban neighborhoods are included in the National Historic District, which was designated in and expanded in On several occasions during the early s.

Hay dos secciones en el cementerio que guardan un significado especial en la historia cubano americana: El monumento a los martires cubanos y el monumento a los soldados que murieron en el acorazado Maine.
El monumento a los martires, localizado en la esquina de calles Palma y Violeta, fue dedicado a aquellos que murieron en la Guerra de los Diez Arios luchando contra el colonialismo espanol.

Thousands of Cuban emigres began to arrive in Miami in , reacting to the establishment of a new dictatorial regime in their native land. They considered themselves exiles, not immigrants, because they sought temporary relief from the political, social and eco- nomic turmoil that beset Cuba when Fidel Castro took power in Thousands also arrived in boats from Port Camarioca in This was a foreshadowing of the massive exodus of Cubans from Mariel Harbor in , and the thousands of rafters that crossed the Florida straits in the s.
During the s and 60s, Cubans arriving in Miami were drawn primarily from the upper and middle socioeconomic classes, because the lives of educated and wealthy professionals were drastically affected by the economic and political changes in Cuba. They were forced to give up their personal property, including homes, farms and businesses, to the new Marxist regime. Once in the U. It was a humbling experience for many but they endured, sustained by the dream of returning to a democratic Cuba.
The attempt to overthrow the Castro govern- ment failed and resulted in the death of and the capture of 1, soldiers of Brigade For many the dream of a free Cuba faded with each passing year. Cubans started to rebuild their lives and set down roots in South Florida. Miami became their own Little Havana, their home away from home. In less than 30 years, Miami was transformed from a vacation resort with a seasonal economy to a cosmopolitan city with a booming economy.
Cubans opened their own businesses and soon Miami was filled with Cuban restaurants, night clubs and shops, as well as grocery stores, sidewalk counter cafes, law firms and doctors' offices. Undoubtedly, Cubans have made major contributions to the development of Greater Miami. Dade County's Hispanic population has gradually increased with the dramatic flow of immigrants from the Caribbean and Latin America.
In spite of their assimilation into American culture, Cubans have steadfastly held on to their customs, traditions and most importantly, their language. Greater Miami shows many signs of the Cubans' will to preserve their rich culture. There are dozens of Spanish newspa- pers and publications, Spanish-language radio stations and television channels.
Some popular Spanish talk shows and variety shows are filmed in Miami and broadcast throughout the U. Today, many of Miami's Cuban Americans occupy top leadership positions in business, politics, education, and the arts and entertainment industry. Miles de cubanos refugiados comenzaron a llegar a Miami en como consecuencia del nuevo regimen dictatorial que asumio el poder en la isla.
Los cubanos se consideraron exiliados y no inmigrantes ya que buscaban refugio temporario de las perturbaciones polfticas, sociales y economicas que acontecieron en Cuba con la venida de Fidel Castro al poder en Entre y los Vuelos de la Libertad transportaron a casi , cubanos a los Estados Unidos.
Miles tambien llegaron por el puente maritimo de Camarioca en Este exodo por el Puerto de Camarioca seria el precursor del exodo del Mariel en , y a los miles de balseros que atravesaron el Estrecho de la Florida en la decada de los noventa. Durante los anos cincuenta y sesenta, la mayoria de los cubanos que llegaba a Miami pertenecia principalmente a las clases mas acomodadas o a la clase media, con un nutrido numero de personas altamente educadas y de profesionales quienes habfan sido afectados directamente por los cambios socioeconomics ocurridos en Cuba.
Al abandonar Cuba, el regimen marxista confisco sus propiedades: casas, fincas y negocios. En los Estados Unidos tuvieron que aprender nuevas costumbres, un nuevo idioma y volver a empezar. Para muchos esta experiencia fue una leccion de humildad, pero se sobrepusieron sostenidos por el sueno de un regreso a una Cuba democratica. En , la Agenda Central de [nteligencia v un grupode cubanos exiliados intentaron convertir el sueno de un regreso en realidad lanzando la invasion de Bahfa de Cochinos. Este intento de derrocar al regimen castrista fracaso y resulto en la muerte de 1 14 y la captura de 1, miembros de la Brigada Con el pasar de los anos, el sueno de una Cuba libre se fue lentamente desvaneciendo para muchos.
Miami se convirtio en la Pequena Habana, una segunda casa. En menos de 30 anos, Miami se transformo de un lugar de vacaciones y veraneo con economia de temporada a una ciudad cosmopolita con una economia en expansion. Los cubanos abrieron sus propios negocios y pronto Miami se colmo de restaurantes. Sin duda. Con las inmigraciones de America Hispana y del Caribe, la poblacion hispana de Miami ha ido en aumento con el pasar de los anos. A pesar de la asimilacion a la cultura norteamericana, los cubanos se han arraigado con firmeza a sus costumbres, tradiciones y aiin mas importante a su idioma.
