>> Guantanamo is a naval base in a sleepy town in rural Cuba. Both share a name but have pretty much nothing to do one with the other. But, they share pasts. I mean, before the Revolution Members of the US Navy used to go to the town, which is located like 30 kilometers away, for entertainment, basically.
And after the revolution, that connection was lost. They share name. They share weather. They share. The same win. But the cultural connection is lost. One is a prison where everything is very rigid and control. And the other one is just a town where like the daily life is flourishing in every corner, where dogs are barking in every street and people are just Leaving the wife.
And I guess for the prisoners in the prison they see their lives passing through a small little window of their cell. You just realise that they're completely two different universes. They're like 30 kilometers apart but they're just far away culturally.
