A short note after hospitalization
by Walter Lippmann
November 25, 2017
Got out of Cira Garcia hospital yesterday afternoon. Feeling better and following doctor´s recommendations, which seemed reasonable and appropriate when I got them. Hoping to write a longer report ony stay in the hosptal which specilizes in providing care for foreigners and Cubans who reside abroad. But not today. Got out and walked to this hotel (Paseo Habana) one block to check a bit of mail.
Tomorrow´s a big day in this country, the municipal elections all across the island. So many people abroad have the impressionm they´ve been given in the hostile media that there are no elections here, but that´s just not true.
Lucky me, Cuba is probably the easiest place on the planet to vote. Indeed, it´s hard NOT to vote here, so big is their GOTV activies, but voting isn´t mandatory. The polling place near where I live is, literally, in the very building where I live, downstairs on the front facing the street (Calle 15, e/A and B), so I may go down stairs and watch for a bit.
Must go now. Need to send a couple of other items to CubaNews and FB.
Thanks to everyone who has called and written to wish me well. I´m definitely better.
