LAZARO DE LA MAZA
I’m from Arroyo Naranjo, a suburb of Havana. My inspiration to learn English was a pretty 6th form teacher; I then went on to university to study English and French, graduating with joint honours, and in my third year I decided to add on German as well. I had many different jobs before becoming a tour guide including working in a bakery, working as a welder, renting out VHS movies, painting tourist handicrafts and of course, working as an English teacher. Anyone who wants to discover something different (and be technology free for a week or two) should visit Cuba. I assure you you’ll go back home with a new understanding of the country and its people who are proud of their culture and heritage. We may be a small island in the Caribbean, but the world certainly knows we exist!
