Other times I unloaded where the truck left me and the city transformed into the faces of people looking at us as if we were coming home from war, the guys bearded and us skinny with tousled hair, everyone in dirty, often torn clothes, with backpacks full of sludge and bodies reeking from days on the road, though thanks to the strange looks or some comment on our arrival home, we realized that the collective perfume that accompanied us in the mountains and in the caves, in the city it was simply called stench. Havana was normality, the break between adventure and adventure, the center of the world, of our limited islander world.
Havana was daily life, the point of departure for the next trip, the umbilical cord. But, to me, Havana is also something else. How is it possible for fish and boats to pass over cars? Many years later, in Rome, an Italian told me, admiringly, that the tunnel under the bay was one of the things that surprised him most about the city. I smiled, and then I took out my map and explained: in Havana, there are three tunnels, two go under the Almendares River and are small, but the most impressive is the bay tunnel, it starts on this side and comes out the other.
It has four tracks. In fact, its architecture is quite similar to the tunnels that go through the French Alps, only the one in Havana is different because when you ride it, you know that a few meters up there could be ships passing overhead or some fish, if there are still fish in those murky waters. And the little boys running, the guys playing soccer, the girls playing hopscotch. Havana is my fingers learning to play guitar in the conservatory. Havana is sneaking out of the college prep school to bathe on the coast and then proudly show off our Caribbean tans. Havana is the ice cream from Coppelia when the ice cream shop was open until two in the morning and was full of different flavors.
There was light in the street and people sitting on their porches. Havana is a concert of young troubadours at el Saborit, in the town of Playa; or at la Casa of the young creator in la Avenida del Puerto. And the women walking down the street with rollers in their hair. And the lions of the Paseo del Prado and el Boulevard and then the streets of downtown Havana flooded with people.
Havana for me, is the polytechnic university where I studied, so sequestered from the city, so full of numbers and late nights at the calculous center and exams and extracurricular jobs in construction or in the fields and military training and cultural festivals. The chaos, the implosion of the country. Not Russian tea anymore, and much less Cuban rum, which was for international tourist.
Havana is, or are, my friends who died untimely deaths, too soon by the logical timeline of any life. You, Havana, are the bodies of your people, the heat on the skin, the brush of a hand, their lascivious glances. The old man who sings while he walks. The old woman smoking on her porch. The shade of your trees. The music that flies out the windows. The sound. The sweat running down the back of cyclist pedaling under the Caribbean sun. The sweat running over our bodies as we make love. You are, sweet Havana, which has become weariness, desperation.
Your airport, Havana, is that cold place where people put on their best clothes to say goodbye. And there are beers and parties, and carts with luggage and sobs choked down in the chest. And our parents are there, on one side or another, waiting for an arrival or a departure, always smiling, because Cubans always smile. And here I am, my Havana, looking at you in photos. New friends in my contacts. The place that leaves me nothing but to keep dreaming, because of everything, in spite of everything. The ghost city I have to discover every time I return, but that looks at me and recognizes me.

When President Trump visited the island in early October Certified by who?
And that same day, when the president left the island, the Puerto Rican government increased the count to 34 deaths. And two months later, the list increased again, this time to So we have 14, 34, But the truth is, in the weeks and months after the storm, there were several local media outlets, like the Center for Investigative Journalism of Puerto Rico, that started reporting a much higher number.
The case is one of the 47 that the Center for Investigative Journalism identified in its most recent journalistic report. Did they keep saying that… that there were just 64 deaths? The government was locked into that number, 64, for almost a year. Eventually, the government of Puerto Rico did commission its own study to verify how many people had died, and that study was conducted by researchers from George Washington University. When in the end, the results of this study came out —in August of —, it was devastating for Puerto Rico because that study indicated there were 2.
First, 3. That is my first question. But the problem is that there were a lot of people in Puerto Rico and in the United States that refused to accept this new number of deaths. And one of the first to reject this new count was President Trump. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico. And you have to remember, in those days it was very hard to get cell signal because everything was devastated. It was at night, and this is another important factor because the electrical system was totally destroyed and had left everyone in the dark.
And he died. And perhaps more importantly: what good is it to know how lethal Maria was? From Puerto Rico, Luis Trelles brings us this story. My grandmother lived in New York. Francheska liked having her around. Where I went, she went laughs. The elder care system in Puerto Rico is fragmented and difficult to navigate. And, of course, the level of quality in these places depends on the price. In Puerto Rico, the prolonged care homes that offer more personalized services —with more individualized care for each resident— can cost between three and four thousand dollars a month, or more.
Laughs What is this! After spending several years in a toxic relationship, she had finally managed to get a divorce. It was right around that time she spent a few months at a shelter for people who had been abused. The population of the island is getting older and older. Today, Puerto Rico is one of the jurisdictions with the highest number of seniors in the entire United States.
Partially because young people leave. A massive migration has occurred in the past 10 years, in a decade of economic depression. And the result is that one in every four Puerto Ricans is 65 or older, and there is a great need to see what kind of care they can be given during that stage of their lives. In the summer of , I went to visit it, to see the conditions the residents are in. Tu Familia is one of several prolonged care homes that I visited for this story. Some were incapacitated and were strapped to their wheelchairs, to keep them from falling on the ground or hurting themselves.
But not much more. Francheska told me that since she left her grandmother at Tu Familia, she was shocked by how they limited visits. Especially in the beginning, when they asked her to spend two weeks without seeing her grandmother. How horrible. She went in independent. She was laying back in a wheelchair. They had to bathe her.
You have to come visit them. You have a responsibility as their child, with your relatives, and you have to assume that responsibility. Every time I could, I went and visited her. And Francheska was worried, it was already known that it would be the most powerful storm in the modern history of the island.
I mean, do you need anything? Not just for my grandmother, but for anyone else. If there were people who And I, well, I was moved by that. And the Department of Family Affairs does inspections to corroborate that every home meets the requirements, requirements like having an emergency electrical generator, with fuel for ten days, the same for supplies of drinkable water and food. Which we all have. That was a powerful thing, what happened to us. The house withstood the storm. And even though the power had gone out, the generator was working too. But that same morning, when the rain and the wind had already passed… [Miosotis]: Yes, one of my seniors had a burst blood vessel, the day after the hurricane.
Her condition was critical. Getting from one place to the other usually takes about ten minutes. Electrical posts split in half, fallen trees, pieces of roofs, of signs even fences and walls that had been blown over by the hurricane were all piled up in the streets. And I could get an ambulance and take her to the hospital. The morning after the hurricane, Francheska got up with a mission: going to see her grandmother to make sure that everything was alright.
The cell towers, the internet, almost all of the communication infrastructure was failing. Francheska left in her car through the flooded streets. It took her several hours, and when she arrived They had just taken her. I got hysterical. Because the air conditioning stopped working.
The electrical generators stopped working. They were down. No, no. Very sad, very sad. It was an emergency across the island.

At the beginning of this story, Luis mentioned that a study by George Washington University found that there were almost 3. What does it really mean? Each tick of the clock represents one hour. In a normal week and a half in Puerto Rico, an average of 75 people die a day. Something like this. A normal period of 11 days. Of those 14, almost all of them were people who died during the hurricane: two police officers who died when they came across a storm surge, three sisters who died in a landslide, things like that. Luis Trelles continues the story. You find out in the hallways, do you understand?
An analysis we did here at Radio Ambulante of the data from the Demographic Registry reveals that 70 percent of the deaths were people over 65 and the majority died of causes related to chronic health conditions. Moreover, the report by George Washington University on the deaths indicated that the majority of them occurred in the municipalities with the highest rates of poverty in Puerto Rico. Five months after the hurricane, people kept dying at a higher than normal rate. And so she started to say goodbye. Do you see me? Be calm. The per But something was going wrong: it was her left leg.
Guess why? Because the electrical generators stopped working. Her grandmother was unconscious, she was too old, she was too fragile. Francheska would have preferred that they at least try to save her. Because there was no relief for people like her in Puerto Rico, at least not then. When they discharged her grandmother, the first thing Francheska wanted to do was take her to her house.
Francheska had her doubts, and the doctors called Tu Familia, and at that home, they reminded her that her grandmother still had a contract with the institution and that she should bring her back because they would be able to take better care of her there. And Francheska went with what they said. The power. We went through a lot. You have no idea. No one knew when the electricity would be back up. The Department of Family Affairs requires that there be emergency generators at the care homes, and Miosotis had her generator, but after keeping it running for several days, it started showing signs that it could break at any minute.
You see, the generators rest. On top of that, there were massive shortages and delays in the distribution of diesel and gasoline all over the island. She needed help, but the government agency that works directly with the prolonged care homes was down for the count. The next day we were without electricity, without communication, without anything. When I spoke with her in September , she told me that her agency did have an emergency plan. That plan counted on their being able to organize a team from the agency itself to provide help to incapacitated seniors.
In other words, the most vulnerable people. Some areas were left without communication for months. There are more than prolonged care houses across the island. Around 3. It was a part of the population that needed immediate help to face life or death situations. But in the days after the hurricane, when there was a race against time to help institutions like Tu Familia, another problem arose that no one in the government had foreseen.
So, of course, that set back the rescue effort for more than three days. Miosotis told me that it took them weeks to get to her institution. A preferred place in line, nothing more. To make matters worse, Francheska discovered that her grandmother had an extremely contagious skin condition. A rash that when you see it you want to pick off the skin because it itches so much. And she told me And so I insisted and asked her if there had been any case of this kind in the months after the hurricane. Because that happens in all of the homes. It happens in hospitals.
I already told you, that happens everywhere. Francheska told me that her grandmother spent nearly a week and a half at the care home when she left the hospital. And in that time, the gangrene on her leg got worse. Even worms. I mean, why does it have to come to that. But Francheska told me that despite this, her grandmother felt pain. Francheska explained that she already knew her grandmother could die at any moment. And that was what upset her the most. Without moving her body? Which must hurt She was 90 years old.
According to the certificate, the direct cause of death was a heart attack. And finally, the doctor who certified her death noted that the patient had gangrene. Who decides what deaths are really caused by a natural disaster? Or the crisis that follows?
What are the criteria? I understand that they were already sick, my seniors and their time came. In many sectors. From bureaucrats, from doctors, from sons and daughters who saw their parents die after the hurricane. Or perhaps the word is convenient. Their time came. But what happened after that —in other words, the chaos that we all experienced on the island— and, of course, the lack of preparation to handle that chaos —in other words, the lack of efficient management of the disaster— all of that came together to cause terrible agony, like a kind of death in slow motion.
Because there are a lot of people in the Puerto Rican government who think they did a great job. And that, well, that it was an unprecedented hurricane that left historic devastation on the island, and that, in those circumstances, government officials did the best they could. But let me give you another clear example, Daniel. And he told me But the truth is they did have visibility: we heard it at the start of the story. Several Puerto Rican and US news outlets were reporting that the number of deaths was much greater than normal.
And they were doing it almost from the onset of the crisis, Daniel. All the media that investigated these deaths tried to speak directly with Pesquera.

But when I reminded him of that journalistic coverage, Pesquera told me And that was, well, the term they use there in the United States is, uh President Trump still insists on denying the number of deaths on the island.

Thank you so much: radioambulante. Right where that sand-colored car is. I had parked my car there. What happened? I mean, when? And he was still under arrest. He was being accused of leading a group that distributed propaganda over the internet, that was recruiting people and radicalizing them to join the jihadist movement.
And you are too. Silvia continues the story. And one with a… with developmental delays. And besides, me being a mother and a psychologist laughs Because I would go out to the park, I went with my kids to Ryane was also in karate. I would take him to karate. I was there with them. I got along with my neighbors. Was she making these friends up? These plans? That I brought from Mexico. I had it there, well No, none of that is mine. The detention order says that she read pieces of writing related to the Prophet Muhammad and that she led these conversations: she advised participants on how to practice Islam and how to recruit new people.
An hour at most? What have you lived there? Some question would come up. For example, now with Ramadan. Telling them, OK let me check. So, nothing. Yes, we met, but no And the little I have studied are the books I have here. She was there temporarily, less than a month. Are they going to take them to social services?
Are they going separate them? How will they live? How long is this going to last? What did you turn to or? One was inducing a maternal coma. That was the first thing. After that, I bought water, the phone card and all that, but that was the first thing I bought. And I started writing and writing and writing, everything.
From the first day to the last. That was what held me together, a little. This is the situation I find myself in. What can I do to improve this feeling? And especially because And then trying to see things and relive memories. So, I would look at them and say I concentrated on the mountains. I saw that instead of that fence, well there was a forest. And when it rained, and I could hear the thunder, well, I was in a cabin, which I always liked. Being in a cabin with a chimney, in the rain with the little birds there.
So, I imagined that. I do remember that date. She got emotional remembering what it was like to see Adam, the youngest one. And whenever he saw me, Adam —who was the first one I saw— he always came out running with his little arms like this to greet me. And it was the same feeling I had with him.
Your mother. And Ryane was more reserved. He sat there looking at me. Be strong. Be brave. Everything happens for a reason. And well then, they left and… and I said I have to give myself another dose of maternal coma to She needed allies in an environment that to her was totally unknown and overwhelming. They were fighting in the showers. They were fighting in the yard. They were fighting in the TV room. They thought I was very weird. She came to have heated discussions with the other women in the prison.
On three occasions they were about to hit me. In October , nine months after her arrest, the prosecution report arrived. It states the charges that she, Aziz, and the other defendants would go to trial for. I spoke with her because, in the spring of , she published a study analyzing, individually So, a little context: after the terrorist attacks in Paris in January that we mentioned in the last episode —against Charlie Hebdo and the kosher supermarket— the Spanish government reformed the penal code.
With this change to this article, disseminating messages or slogans on the internet promoting terrorism became an aggravating circumstance —in other words, the penalty can be higher. And since then —as Amnesty International noted in a special report on the topic— sentences for promotion under this article leaped in Spain: from 18 in to 31 in In fact, of sentences delivered between and , only 14 were related to groups like Al Qaeda.
The majority were about armed Spanish groups that are now inactive or dissolved, like the ETA. But many of these cases are against social media users, musicians, or journalists. The accusation calls for a year and eight months in prison. The court found him guilty of injuries to the Crown. Aside from facing charges for the crime of promoting terrorism and supporting the ETA and other organizations Which she denies. Because the first day I go home after they arrest me, as soon as I walk in the door and see the solitude of a tomb, because the house was empty.
Her children had to go live in Morocco with their paternal grandparents. Now she can speak with the kids every day, seeing them on camera. I go out. So we went to the park, to that bench she just mentioned. Hello, how are you? I only managed to answer a few. The five minutes were up. Without a job, without the kids, without Aziz, the days are long. Because Saturday and Sunday are when Aziz was around.
We could go out, go do a lot of things. So, in June , I went back to Madrid. How are you? The news you need to take on the day in just about 10 minutes. Listen to Up First every morning from Monday to Friday. Planet Money: look for us wherever you get your podcasts. He had traveled to be at the trial.
Remember the most serious charges were against Aziz. Not just because of how the trial could go, but also because of what it meant to have gotten here after so much time. And to see Aziz. You have to look at the bright side. We went through security, we showed our IDs and went down to where the courtrooms are, where they hold the trials.
We sat waiting on a cold, metal bench, in a wide hallway outside of the courtrooms. Everything was gray, with no windows, in a basement. The light was white. On a bench near us, were two others who were accused in the same case.
When she sat back down at my side, after speaking with Jacobo, she looked upset. After this, we finally went into the room. One of them is the President of the Court, who directs the trial. On the left side, there are the lawyers and someone taking notes on a computer. In front of them are the defendants. Aziz is wearing jeans and a pink polo. The President of the Court then says that for them the trial has ended, and they can go. Not the one who is deprived of liberty, the other two can leave if you like. After the three defendants leave, Jacobo —their lawyer— starts asking Aziz questions, all related to the accusations against him.
Beginning with the first part, are you… are you a fundamentalist. Where do you come from? When he talks about his work, he says that he works with women and even his boss was a woman, that he had Jewish clients. Then, about his activity on Facebook, they concentrate on one thread in particular, a conversation about the origin of the Islamic State. Because I have a very clear and defined position against terrorist groups and in particular the group His argument is that his comments are criticizing the Islamic State, not supporting it.
Then there are more questions like this one. In total, this part lasted more than half an hour. And then some police took him back to jail in handcuffs. In other words, look at it with prejudice against them and logically it all looks bad for them. They were accused of planning a terrorist attack on the Barcelona metro. They were convicted of belonging to a terrorist group. Then, the Supreme Court reduced the sentence for some of them and absolved two.
For example, in Spain, several people were accused of being collaborators in the September 11th attacks in New York. He was accused of participating in the conspiracy. He was sentenced to 27 years in prison in The next year, the Supreme Court absolved him of the crime of conspiracy and lowered the sentence to 12 years. So, Jacobo is someone who knows very well how the Spanish justice system treats these cases. In other words, the right to demand that all of the true origins of the investigation be revealed, and we have to go off of hypotheses.
They say we were, as they say, patrolling. As they ironically say here: patrolling the internet and, well, we saw this man with a profile that made us suspicious. But aside from what started this investigation, for Jacobo, in this case I mean, it could happen to anyone. The second day the agents who worked on the investigation and expert witnesses gave statements. The prosecutor was the first to ask questions. The agent says that the administrator —Aziz— posted explicit content that incited people to die as martyrs, for example, or images of jihadists.
It had almost three thousand friends They also listened to telephone calls. And all this brought them to the conclusion that Aziz led a group of radicalized Muslims and that he also had a lot of influence at the mosque in Pinto. Jacobo questioned these and other accusations.
Some were very explicit. A woman translated them and explained what they were about. And that is where we enter in the dynamic, or in the controversy, between if this is about freedom of expression or if this is about promotion. Then Jacobo speaks for almost half an hour, questioning the accusations and the agents that testified.
And several times he goes back to the topic of freedom of expression. She starts to speak. Free myself because Calm down. The President of the court interrupts her and explains that she is giving her the right to the last word in order to add something that she considers relevant to her own defense that her lawyer has not said.
This chapter is over now Specifically, with regards to your defense, do you want to say anything else or is what your lawyer has said enough? So I hope that all of this is favorable and that now It violated her fundamental right to a process with all guarantees. And the prosecutor explains that even though part of the defendants reached a plea agreement, they still had to conduct the trial with all of the defendants in a case like this one. In February of , the Supreme Court canceled the sentence and ordered that the trial be repeated with a different court.
Aziz was released on parole on March 14th. At the time we released this episode a new date for the trial had not been announced. She lives in London. This story was edited by Camila Segura and by me.

I wake up. There was no light or anything. Get on the floor! But as soon as she could, she spoke with the agents. Aziz was one of four men the Civil Guard arrested that day in the state of Madrid. He was accused of leading a group that distributed propaganda over the internet, that was recruiting and radicalizing people to join the jihadist movement. How a Mexican woman, five years after moving to Spain, comes to find herself in this situation —with her home full of agents, with her husband arrested on terrorism charges— and everything that comes after that.
After communicating over WhatsApp for several months, in late May of , I traveled to Madrid to interview her. We met up at the train station in Pinto, and we walked to her home, a simple, interior apartment. Very tidy and very quiet. Her children —one six-year-old and one three-year-old— where in Morocco with her in-laws. On it there was a kind of cookie her in-laws had sent her from Morocco; there was also water and juice, but just one glass, for me. She grew up in a very Catholic family.
Her mother, in particular, was very devout.

So, it was like she started inculcating that in us. It was They were very close; her grandmother took care of her while her parents were at work. She says she was like her mother. And her death made her question a few things, like why people get sick or if God is fair. But in her house, she continued being educated in the Catholic faith —maybe even more so because of the situation they were in.
So, well that was how I grew up, you know? With that idea that God exists but that Why do these things happen to us? So much time has passed. And she laments the violence that exists in the world. I feel alone, wanting to cry. But I know you are with me and nothing bad will happen to me.

I feel sad for my brothers and sisters that are less fortunate than me. I kept it here in the Bible. She was still feeling that emptiness she just mentioned. And one day, someone in her department invited her to a Catholic retreat. She says that was when her faith started to be more genuine. While she was still studying at college, she would help the priests and nuns giving speeches to vulnerable communities in the city. And she loved it. That whole process of growing, shaping myself professionally as much as spiritually.
But she started to wonder Not because of a lack of faith or commitment on her part but, but because something discouraged her. When she refused him, he accused her of flirting with him. She says that it seemed sexist, that it opened her eyes to the hierarchy that existed in the Church. On the contrary, she started going to Mass and confession more. I never thought about it, never. She accepted. It combined two things she liked: working with kids and talking about God. She signed up for a course on the Bible, and in one class the teacher said that from the children of Abraham —Isaac and Ishmael— a great lineage would descend.
So, she went to ask a priest who she trusted. How could there be a great lineage coming from them? There were several representatives from different religions. The activities and events focused on four topics: cultural diversity, sustainability, understanding, and peace.
I mean, you always place them So, I started talking to them, and I asked my questions. I mean, directly. Islam has nothing to do with terrorism, September 11th They also explained that, to them, Jesus is neither God, nor the son of God, but he is a prophet. She started reading and studying everything they gave her and a few months later she went to a mosque for the first time, it was the only one in Monterrey.
Her initial goal of getting close to the Muslims at that forum —to get material for her class— had changed. Now it was something more. She started meeting with them, making Muslim friends, and she kept studying, Islam as much as Catholicism. She asked the priest for books on the history of the Catholic Church. I mean, everything I had believed started to vanish. And when I was preparing them, I was conflicted. I mean, it was Everything I had been taught, what I had been brought up with, what I had learned, or what I knew turned out to not be true.
She had already done the reading, she had already done the research, she had already talked about her doubts with the Muslims as much as with the priest. It was time to make a decision. After about three months, she says she realized that I want to be a Muslim. I think Islam is what I want. These people have brainwashed you! Do you want them to kill you? Go around all covered up and all that? You have to believe it.
The Muslim community in Monterrey is small but very diverse. Their spokesperson —Sergio Orta— told me there are about people in the community, including women, men, and children. Most of them are foreigners; there are about 60 Mexicans. But, what does it mean to be Muslim in Mexico? In Mexico, a country where no She was learning more and more about Islam, and every day she felt more confident in herself.
But something was missing. So, in Islam You have to So, with her new friends, she got on the internet. For almost a year, she was talking to a guy who lived in Spain, but he only wanted an open relationship.
