The people who read to Cuban cigar-factory workers
Hearing The Count of Monte Cristo, while rolling Montecristos
EVERY morning at 8:30 Gricel Valdés-Lombillo mounts a platform at the H. Upmann cigar factory and starts the first of her 30-minute shifts reading to an audience of 150 torcedores, or cigar rollers. Throughout the day she will divert them with snippets of news, horoscopes, recipes and, most important, dramatic readings of literature. In a career that began in 1992 she has read “The Count of Monte Cristo”, a longstanding favourite among torcedores, three times. The popularity of this tale of revenge is the origin of Cuba’s Montecristo brand. Another 250 workers—despalilladoras (leaf strippers), rezagadores (wrapper selectors) and escojedores (colour graders)—hear Ms Valdés-Lombillo’s readings through the public-address system.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?
    I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future
    but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments
    are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the
    same comment. There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

    Howdy, I do think your blog could be having internet browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, if
    opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Apart from that, excellent blog!
