In Touch with a different culture: Cody

codyWhere is your country and what is the official language?

Cuba. The language is Cubanese.

What is a traditional food from your country?

I’m partial to bananas, cheese and olives seasoned with the tears of the baboons.

What was the biggest culture shock you’ve experienced at Kalani?
I was surprised by the lack of respect and the hatred for your president. In Cuba, we cherish our leader. In every home, there is a picture of him hanging above their hearths and altars. He is a guru to the Cuban people.

What do you like most about your culture?

Hunting baboons in the jungle. I have a few scars on my buttucks from the baboons. They were earned in battle.

How do you say ‘hello’ and ‘I love you’ in Cubanese?

Hello:  Hola.

 I love you: Te amo

What is the national dance?
The Macarena
