Si usted es de los que pensaba que la mayor atracción del año en La Habana era Barack Obama, piénselo otra vez. El Presidente de Estados Unidos, pese a su carisma y su coraje en viajar a Cuba dejando a un lado medio siglo de enemistad, fue solo el acto de apertura para los Rolling Stones, un grupo que es un monumento a la improbable energía y resistencia de la gente de la tercera edad.

If you thought Barack Obama was the big ticket this year in Havana, think again. The President of the United States, for all his charisma and courage in traveling to Cuba putting aside half century of relentless enmity, was only the opening act for the Rolling Stones, a band that is a monument to the improbable stamina and endurance of old —and I mean, old— people.
