Life on Cuba is tough. Earning your money is hard. And leading a successfull business is even tougher. During Fidel Castro’s regime even the tobacco industry suffered from governmental restrictions and state owner ships. Except for those business men who were able to deal with the circumstances. One of them was tobacco grower Alejandro Robaina, who’s silken tabacco leaves are still beyond fame. He was a living legend that we met by hazard on our trip to Cuba. He died last year. He was 91. The man on the picture is one of his workmen on the Cuban plantation. Look at his focussed face. His fingers. How could you ever doubt that with his experienced hands he produces the world’s most desirable cigars?
