Vancouver British Columbia Canada January 1 2011: Note from UH TIM Alumni and Former UH TIM School Staff Cecilia Lau: Hi Johnson & Carmen - Nice to always receive TIM Alumi news from you. My family has gone to Cuba for vacation during Christmas. We would like to share with you our family picture taken at Cayo Blanco, Varadero, a pristine beach with unpolluted water. We have eaten lobsters fresh from the sea at $10 each, an amazing deal. Since Cuba is a communist country, resources are very limited, it is probably the last few places on earth that you don't have to buy souvenirs made in China. The Cubans are very green, as they make souvenirs out of beer cans, grass, rice paper & any kind of recyled materials. Hotel staff work for more than 12 hours per day, only get 2 days off after 10 days of work. Cigar & Rum are cheaper than a bag of chips or a can of coke. The Cuban government guarantees 3 meals a day for every citizen. We think of them as poor third world country, but surprisingly I have never seen such a race of honest, cheerful & colorful culture. They are very self-contented and peaceful people. We have learned a lot from their lifestyle and culture from this trip. Last but not least, Happy New Year for you & your family! Please keep in touch.

I only got to know folks at my own table (Andy Wang '70, Alex Yim '70, Edward So '70, Louis Kwan '70, Brenda So, '72, Jim Ip '70 and Alice Ip, Alex and Angela Lam - Nelson's children). I recognized Josephine and John McCafee, Charles Wong '69, Roland Ho '72 and, of course Nelson Lam and Lincoln Young.
