Cuban dictator Fidel Castro claims to live frugally. Lies. “He lives in a luxury most Cubans can not even imagine.” That according to Juan Reinaldo Sánchez, a former Castro body-guard, in his memoirs, ” Fidel Castro’s Hidden Life”. “Contrary to what he has always said, Fidel has never renounced capitalist comforts or chosen to live in austerity.”
Sanchez was a body-guard for 17 years before being branded a traitor and tossed into jail. Now in “La Vie Cachée de Fidel Castro (Fidel Castro’s Hidden Life),” Sanchez says Castro enjoyed a private island as well as a private 88 foot yacht and 20 luxury homes. The Cuban leader also always traveled with 10 body guards, two of whom had to have the same blood type as Castro who didn’t trust stored blood.
All of this comes as a surprise to some. Those who still believe in the legend of Fidel Castro need to First, Think, then Think Again.
