JACQUELINE: I share my life between Lyon (France) and Santiago de Cuba that I know very well (16 years). I have activities in the culture (music, poetry, literature). I'm "in love with the city" and its culture and I love to share my passion. I can teach Spanish for beginners
-Santiago de Cuba Isn’t a city at risk. However, as everywhere, we must be vigilant.
- Always keep your smile.
- Cubans are poor in general. They have very little or no opportunity to pay entertainment. We must therefore know that if you invite one or more Cubans, you will need to take in charge all the expenses, whether drinks, meals, or entered in the music scene (in the latter the cost ranges from 1 to 5 CUC).
-Absolutely refuse to buy cigars on the street, they are of poor quality. Joaquin can advise you.
- Non fumeur mais il est possible de fumer dehors.
- Avoir un comportement respectueux et discret vis-à-vis du voisinage.
Je partage ma vie entre Lyon (France) et Santiago de Cuba. Mon compagnon, pianiste, vit dans cette dernière ville.
Nous aimons les échanges culturels, la musique (classique, jazz, musique traditionnelle cubaine), la littérature..., la nature, et partage nos connaissances.
Je parle couramment le français et l'espagnol et mon compagnon (cubain) se débrouille bien en français.
Nous sommes toujours très heureux de faire découvrir Santiago, ville multi-culturelle et magique.
