Hola Fidel y Rual

Jerry took me on a fantastic tour of the fence line restricted to GTMO residents, unless they have special permission and a Marine escort. This is a hill in Communist Cuba with a security tower on top. You may need to get your reading glasses, Mom, or you can make the picture bigger by clicking on it. I waved and said hello. They didn't wave back.
GTMO shares a bay with Guantanamo City. Many Cubans use this passage to escape Communist Cuba. This sign is basically telling these Cubans what to do. It also advises them we are not going to shoot them and will care for them.This is the barrier across the bay, put up by the Cubans. 

I will make this a two part post. The next post will be of the Northeast Gate.
