Havana
I'm sitting on the terrace. The old Cuban Luis next to me has smoked his umpteenth cigar today and is bobbing back and forth in his armchair. Every now and then he smiles at himself. Buzz. Or sing quietly in a broken voice. I don't understand a word, but I feel he's in a beautiful place in his mind. Somewhere in his story. In his life. Here in Cuba.

It's still very hot this evening and we drink rum. Lots of rum. The later it gets, the better the bottles. At some point Luis comes back with a dusty bottle and places it wordlessly on the table. He sits down and places the two fresh, clean glasses from his other hand on the table. He looks at me and only nods slightly. I see what you mean.

As he opens the bottle, wordlessly, as almost the entire evening, his nose lingers very long over the opened treasure. He gives both glasses full. A gesture beyond what could only be understood as hospitality. He leads the glass to the mouth and remains under the nose again to absorb the scent. I do it right away and smell the cherry from the cherry barrel in which this rum must have been stored for a long time before it came into the bottle. I smell dried fruit and this dark sweetness ripens rum.

It has the colour of the dark Cuban honey and "oils" something on the glass. With a slight nod - a silent cheers - we drink. Two men from other lives. Understood without words.

The moon is to be seen in the meantime and we provoke also it wordlessly. In the air Luis is still hanging his cigar smoke and mixes with the taste of the rum to a lasting memory.

Cigar Rum is Havana in a bottle. It is joy of life, mixed with the not easy fate and the obvious poverty of these wonderful people. People who care about every day and every hour. People who live in the here and now because they don't know what tomorrow will bring. Who can dance every day, laugh and celebrate being here. Sometimes singing out loud. Sometimes quiet and yet full of stories.

Like opening an old trunk full of grandpa's treasures in a musty dark room: cherry pipe tobacco, faded pictures & moth-eaten handkerchiefs.
