The poster DT (Don Tomas) was murdered in Colombia.
Love him… hate him… who cares… it makes absolutely no difference. For years he was a force on the Cuban discussion forums. He knew more about the so-called “real” Cuba in Havana than 99% of the people posting on these bloody forums.
In person he was a genuinely decent guy (and scary smart) and even though he was a big blonde Dane he had such personal understanding/knowledge of Cuban culture, mannerisms and language that more often than not he could pass as a Cuban.
He still owes me a bunch of beers and some CUC for the last cellphone top-up. I’m pissed that I’ll never collect face-to-face. Bastard.
It’s a very sad day. Tomas died way, way before his time. He should have continued pissing off Cuban tourists (including me) for years and years.
