Robberies here are becoming more and more frequent, and sometimes have fatal consequences. Luckily for us, the vast majority of Cubans are honest, hard-working and good-hearted people. However, there are other people who aren’t like this at all and want everything, or almost everything, without working and earning it with their daily sweat and sacrifice.
Some people blame it on need, but we’d have to add other things such as negligence, indifference and even a lack of awareness of some people who have a job to do. For example, Tres Picos hill, which leads down from Villa Panamericana to the Bahia neighborhood, is a favorite haunt for misdeeds.
This stretch has become really dangerous, especially at night, as there is practically no street lighting, only one bulb half-way down; there are streetlights, but their bulbs have fused.
