Cuban dating girl
In theory everyone has what they need to survive, but no one has much spare change for entertainment, or a varied diet, or anything else to make life a little more comfortable or interesting.Going out with a foreigner is one of the few ways a young Cuban is going to have some fun on a Saturday night.They dance for a while and he is convinced she totally digs his shit because she is all over him.They take a taxi back to his room where she spends the night (provided she can get past the concierge).Rule #3: Sex is not free, but prices are negotiable.In a country where health care and education are free and basic produce is covered by a ration card, wages are very low.Everyone knows this is going to be a short-term thing. Everyone knows that compared to the toned, bronzed local guys who can dance, sing, play percussion and cut sugar cane you’re pretty fucking lame. The problem with all this is that while it’s mostly just a bit of harmless slap and tickle with a new pair of shoes thrown in, the system is wide open to abuse.Cuba has long had a reputation for producing stunningly attractive men and women, but increasingly now it has a reputation for offering the kind of cheap strange that you’d never be able to get at home.
Kids, grandparents, cousins and aunts all turn up for a meal (sometimes these ‘cousins’ are actually spouses).By day the Cuban girls batted their eyes, smiled and waved at me or blew kisses to me. If I sat on a bench, a girl quickly appeared at the other end of it.By night they hissed from the shadows or yowled out from street corners. Even standing before a Santería shrine, an attendant was sure I needed a date for the night.As I tried to avoid eye contact with the errant gonad I realised that this guy, with his swagger and dangle, understood Cuba far better than I did.I was the one struggling to make sense of the place. When I went to Cuba, I didn’t know that everyone went there to get laid.
So a guy gets talking to a girl (although there’s every possibility it is she who initiated the conversation).
