Hola, Querida Prima Keila María Olmo Fong, Abraham Molina y Prima Jemima!

Me dicen que hablas con mi Mamá, tu Tía Gardenia Fong Ramos por teléfono y yo necesito hablar con ella aquí en Chicago, porque estoy en el Centro de Ancianos de Edgewater, Edgewater Senior Center, 5917 North Broadway, Chicago, Illinois 60660, Telephone 312-742-5323/312-742-5187. Hace once (11) años que mi Madre no me habla en persona, ni siquiera se encuentra conmigo. Yo necesito reunirme con mi Mamá, Gardenia Fong Ramos. Me puedes hacer el favor de decírselo cuando hables con ella por teléfono, Keila María Olmo Fong.

Espero que al recibo de estas líneas se encuentren bien en La Habana, Cuba. He estado pensando mucho en ustedes. Hacen ya once (11) meses desde que nos vimos en Santiago de Cuba, a fines del mes de abril en el año 2016. Desde entonces no he tenido noticias tuyas, aunque te he escrito y he compartido las fotos que sacamos juntas en Santiago de Cuba. Pero, no me has contestado, ni siquiera por correo electrónico.

Por esta región del norte, todavía es invierno a orillas del Lago Michigan y por los Cinco Grandes Lagos de Ontario, Hurón, Superior y Erie, incluyendo al Gran Lago Michigan. La temperatura ha bajado a 5-6-7 grados en Fahrenheit con mucha nieve, vientos de tormentas que causan estragos, daños y perjuicios, además cae granizo también. A pesar de todo, sale el sol y se calienta un poco el ambiente.

Desde que llegué de Santiago de Cuba, el 29 de abril 2017, Roberto Santiago Hung Fong me dejó en la calle y no me abrió la puerta del apartamento, ni me dejó entrar en el apartamento, ni siquiera para ir al baño ni utilizar la ducha para bañarme. Además se quedó con mi ropa de invierno, todos mis abrigos, mis suéteres de lana fina y de algodón, mis botas de invierno, mis efectos electrónicos, mis documentos personales, mi equipo electrónico. Roberto Santiago Hung Fong se hace el ignorante y se comporta mal educado, malcriado y es un desgraciado. Hace once (11) meses que no veo ni hablo con Roberto Santiago Hung Fong tampoco.

Me acuerdo de escribirte unas líneas de recuerdo porque hace una semana me invitaron a visitar a la Iglesia Misión Cristiana Elim en Rogers Park, Chicago. Conocía a Citlali Yadira Calvo y a su esposo Jesús con sus dos hijos gemelos que me llevaron a la Iglesia Misión Cristiana Elim a petición de su Madre Olga Olmos y su esposo Cuauhtémoc Olmos que ahora están en México. Lo curioso es que su apellido de familia es “Olmos” y tú apellido de familia es “Olmo”, parecen estar relacionados por la religión Pentecostal Bautista Cristiana. Olga y Cuauhtémoc Olmos participan también en la Iglesia El Calvario que es un servicio hispano de la Iglesia Bautista de Edgewater en Chicago.

Espero que recibas mi carta hoy, Keila. Por favor contéstame y escríbeme a vuelta de correo electrónico. Dios mediante, nos volvamos a reunir este año 2017 en La Habana, donde vives con tu familia, Abraham Molina y tu hija Jemima.

Me dices ¿cómo estás? Todavía vives en el mismo lugar o ya has permutado. ¿Te mudaste de casa, Keila? Escríbeme por favor. Dios sólo sabe los problemas que mi hermano menor Roberto Santiago Hung Fong ha causado a propósito desde que llegamos de Santiago de Cuba. Me dejó en la calle sin vivienda, ni alojamiento, ni albergue en Chicago. Ni siquiera me devolvió mi ropa de invierno. Entonces estoy con el frío en la calle porque no me quiere ni ver, ni hablar, ni encontrarse conmigo en personal.

Te cuento lo que me pasa porque seguramente ya te lo han dicho en persona.

Dios mediante, se resuelven estos problemas pronto. Es un caso de urgencia.

Por favor, escríbeme a vuelta de correo electrónico.

Adjunto dos (2) fotos de recuerdo por nuestra reunión familiar en Santiago de Cuba.

There is a unique place in town where you can find Almond Nougat made by Casa Real, also known as "Turrón Imperial de Almendras de calidad suprema". LA UNICA Food Store imports special almond nougat and specialty confectioners’ foods all year round, especially to celebrate Christmas’ Eve and the holidays at the end of the year.

LA UNICA also has a Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Restaurant which prepares Latin American favorite meals to dine-in or carry out, including Catering for Special Events.

There is a wide choice of Latin American variety foods from Cuba, México, Perú, Spain, Ecuador, Salvador, Colombia, etc. Order anything you can remember to taste from milk shakes made from mangoes, mamey, blackberry, lulo, papaya, passion fruit, guanaba to Vegan favorites like natural carrot juice or orange juice.

LA UNICA Special features Cuban Steak, Chicken, Rice, Beans, and Fried Sweet Plantains. Many Cuban fans order the favored Cuban Sandwich prepared upon request with fresh French bread stuffed with Smoked Ham, Roasted Pork, Melting Swiss Cheese, Pickles, Mustard & Mayonnaise, pressed in a hot grill for a mouthful of Cuban Sandwich panini.

Forty (40) years ago, family relatives, cousins Yolanda Wong Fen and Fernando Wong who shopped regularly at LA UNICA introduced my Father Roberto Hung and Mother to the original Cuban-American owner at LA UNICA who showcased Cuban-American food specialties like Sandwich Cubano, Guava Pastries, and Almond Nougat Imperial Torte imported from Spain. Ever since, I have remained a loyal fan and customer of LA UNICA’s unique Spanish American food specialties, since I used to work for a Travel Agency School with Fabiola along Clark Street, in the Edgewater area by LA UNICA Latin American Food Store and Restaurant…

During the decade of the 1950’s, the Turkish Sultan, the Prince, and his delegation visited the University of Oriente in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba while my Father was appointed Dean of the College of Law, Business, and Economics involved in Geological Prospecting for Mining Research. At the age of two years old, I was fortunate to be included in all of my Father’s professional, civics, academic, social events, and religious activities with my Mother and family at the University of Oriente in Santiago de Cuba. During 1959, 1960, and 1961, my parents introduced me as the first daughter formally to international diplomats, dignitaries, delegates, special guests, and visitors who met them at the University of Oriente and the University of La Habana in Cuba.
While the Turkish Sultan and the Prince’s delegation visited the eastern region of Cuba called Oriente, my Father was assigned to welcome and host the visiting guests and delegations from the United Nations, Turkey, Germany, France, Bulgaria, Europe, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Latin America, Asia, the United States, and other countries welcomed by Cuba. Naturally, I began to meet international visitors speaking in Spanish, English, English, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Scandinavian, and other languages–I became motivated and encouraged to learn how to speak other languages in addition to Spanish in Cuba.
Later on, I received a copy of the book titled, One Thousand and One Night or the Arabian Nights in Spanish for me to read about magic flying Turkish carpets and the Middle East open market in Istanbul, Turkey. Then, one night I dreamt that I was visiting the Open Market in Istanbul, Turkey. The next day, I woke up wondering how I was dreaming about travels in such faraway lands.
Several years later, in 1986, my dream became true when I met Nathan Scott Wittler, the first son of the Anglican missionary Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin, who were assigned to live in Istanbul, Turkey by the World Council of Churches, and share U.S. residence in West Dummerston, Brattleboro, in the State of Vermont, New England, USA. Former U.S. Navy PC-3 Nathan S. Wittler invited me to travel to Istanbul with him and meet his parents and siblings, Brian, Kent, and Heather Wittler. So, I did visit the Sultan’s Palace Topkapi, also known as the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey.
Amazingly, my childhood dream came true when the Wittlers invited me to the Turkish Open Market in 1986.
