Rafael's Story

After arriving from La Habana,I spent a few days in Miami with friends, waiting to catch a plane to Santiago,Chile. Flew alone, during 2 days with one extra night in Lima, Perú, after the plane broke down. Lived in Santiago until late 1970,when I had to flee the country for political reasons, before Allende took control of the government and reinstated diplomatic relations with Cuba, that year. Lived for 2 years in Madrid and 15 years in NYC, first undocumented and latter exiled until 1985, when I became a US citizen. Moved back to Chile in 1987,where I have been living ever since. Studied at Cathedral School,in La Habana. I have Post Graduate studies in Economics and Finance at NYU and Irving Trust Co., after attending 4 Universities, in Chile, Spain and the USA. Graduated Suma Cum Laude. Became V.P. of ITC bank, at One Wall St.NYC. Have traveled extensively throughout the world many times and I am currently, an independent investor, broker and financial advisor. I haven´t had any contacts with Cuba since 1961 and have met very few Cubans, ever since. I found out, that I was part of Pedro Pan this big operation), only in the late 1990´s through internet. No one ever told me before. I have no children, no family, nada de nada and looking forward to starting my life any time now. VIVA CUBA LIBRE!!!

Saludos, Rafael. Tu historia es otro ejemplo de cuantas diferentes y asombrosas formas cambiaron las vidas de los que eramos menores cuando aquella hecatombe llego a Cuba. Aun con los pocos detalles que nos compartes, es obvio que tu historia es mas que extraordianaria. Bienvenido a esta "reunion" por internet de los Pedro Pans y gracias por compartir tu interesantisima e inusual historia.
