Tony and I were driving the very last legs of our journey to Baracoa. We had been on this mountain road for about an hour already and it had started raining. I was personally very surprised to see any kind of mountains at all in Cuba, and to see this jungle-like landscape. The rain and cool air was very refreshing to our dusty skin. We passed these folks on one bend of the road. Tony mentioned that they most likely were selling stuff. So we stopped. I turned out buying everything they had - two bundles of mandarins, 3 bars of chocolate, and 3 cone-shaped, leaf-wrapped containers of pulverized almonds - very lovely stuff.
North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
