CIEN BARCOS EN LA HISTORIA DE CUBA (ONE HUNDRED BOATS IN THE HISTORY OF CUBA). The main events of our History have been marked by boats. In remote times, Cuba was a barren territory ... and our first inhabitants arrived on ships. We became an island populated by Caribbean aborigines, but with Christopher Columbus' three caravels we became s a Spanish colony. And that we were  until the Maine exploded in Havana, making us an independent country but very dependent on the United States. And then the Granma arrived, which routed the Island to the East and a good number of Cubans to the North. The boats of the Bay of Pigs tried, without success, to open a new chapter. All these boats made us Spanish, English and American. But, above all, they made us Cubans: With what they brought (Cachita, the shield, the flag, the Marti's Simple Verses, baseball, the butterfly, the national flower) —and what they took (emigration, sugar, the habanera)— we made our Cuba and we became the people that we are today.
