I called my Cousin Lidia Sánchez Fujishiro on the telephone in Santiago de Cuba in order to arrange a Family Reunion and a personal visit with her and the family of Aunt Toña Fujishiro y Uncle Juan Sánchez in Santiago de Cuba. When I visited the family, her youngest brother Franky offered to pick me up in his car at my Aunt Xiomara’s home in Carretera del Morro y Calle 3, during the week and later on Saturday, 23 April 2016.
