Ariel Bermudez, the owner of the pool. About 20 years before I met him, Ariel, took a very dangerous 2 day boat ride to the USA where he lived for many years before obtaining a green card. In the time between that boat trip and his return to Cuba, he and his first wife got divorced, I think on account of the distance. He is now remarried (with a young daughter pictured) and is trying to build a business in his home city of Remedios. He was really nice and interesteding to talk to. He still goes back to the USA from time to time to make money to subsidize his Cuba project. He works in shipbuilding in the USA.
