Camisa Tradicional de Cuba


In the fall of 2000 I first became enthralled by la guayabera, la camisa tradicional de Cuba. I vowed to one day own a guayabera of my own so I could feel like a white person who'd been to Cuba...minus the cigar. This past week my dreams came true when I purchased this mint green guayabera in Cabo. Of course, the sales clerk argued that 'la guayabera es la camisa tradicional de Yucatan!' I let his ignorance slide.

(to any present or future employers: I like my Margaritas with salt, preferably in a cactus stemmed glass.)
