How much my life does have changed in the last seven months? The answer is that it has change a lot, and here is why. Until last January I lived in Cuba, the country where I was born and lived for 42 years, the only place on earth I knew before I had the chance to move in here. I have no regrets for the step I took, I prefer to live here rather than living the rest of my life there, in despite I have to start all over again, including my profession, something I already knew because of others experience.
