Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter discusses Eduardo's life in Cuba and Villaverde. Eduardo went to live in Havana in 1982, at first in one of the agreeable government guest houses that he had come to know. After a while, he was permitted by the Cuban government to buy a house in Vedado in Havana. In the meantime, Eduardo was allocated by SIME to a factory to the east of the city beyond the port and known recently as Amistad Cubano-Soviética, in which he recreated his splendid life in Villaverde, Madrid. He would begin his day with a walk around his new plant with a springy step, just as he had done in Spain in the old days, and showed the same care for his workers and their families that he had shown in Spain.
