“Travels to a Different Time ” : Santiago de Cuba: July 1996: The Pudge Boys from Hamburg

There are two rather pudgy boys from Hamburg that are staying at the hotel. Both are called Ollie. They rise late and soon after begin consuming vat quantities of Mayabe beer until they retire at 2 a.m. Both are students at the University of Hamburg and both have ponytails. They enjoy heavy metal and punk music. They are pool rats and never set foot in the ocean. I never see them at the dining room. Could they be surviving on beer alone? One night at the disco the pudge boys were trying to fondle some girls without any success so back to the pool they went to down Heineken’s they had bought at Hamburg Duty Free and swilled back many a bottle listening to Metallica. They said if you do not like Metallica you are stupid and right wing and probably work for an insurance company or a bank. They love their soccer team and watch them drinking a lagoon of beer.
