The portal Desde Cuba, where this blog and others are housed, has come out with its statistics. Even though I don’t put too much stock in the numbers, the fact is that the data are too good to hide. I still believe that most of the people I meet in the street who tell me they read this site didn’t get here through an internet connection, but rather though copies on CDs, flash memories, and emails sent by family and friends abroad.
Those who have blocked the site from inside Cuba can take much of the responsibility for the increase in the number of hits. With their clumsy actions, they don’t seem to notice that nothing is as attractive as that which is forbidden.
Enjoy the numbers, but don’t get caught up in the statistics… the best thing that has happened to us is not reflected in this curve that goes up and up.
