Hurricane Sandy left Bahamas late Friday and is now heading northward toward the U.S. East Coast, where it threatens to join with winter weather fronts to create a super storm.

At least 43 people were killed across the Caribbean.

A British CEO of an investment bank was reported killed in Bahamas due to the category 1 Hurricane Sandy.

Officials at Deltec Bank & Trust identified him as Timothy Fraser-Smith.

On Thursday Hurricane Sandy pounded Cuba as a category 2 hurricane killing at least 11 people in eastern Santiago and Guantanamo provinces.

In Haiti at least 29 people were killed by Hurricane Sandy.

In Jamaica, a person was killed and another person was killed in Puerto Rico.

This is a disaster.

Guantánamera

12 01 2009

Guantánamera is a Spanish song.

Yesterday I listen to Guantánamera on You Tube.

Sandpipers sang the song.

I love this song because it is  very, very, very, very nice.

In English Guantánamera means a girl from Guantanamo.

This is the lyrics of Guantánamera:

Yo soy un hombre sincero
De donde crece la palma
Y antes de morirme quiero
Echar mis versos del alma
Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera

I am a sincere man
From where the palm tree grows
And before dying I want
To share the verses of my soul.

Mi verso es de un verde claro
Y de un carmín encendido
Mi verso es de un ciervo herido
Que busca en el monte amparo
Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera

My verse is light green
And it is flaming crimson
My verse is a wounded deer
Who seeks refuge on the mountain (or in the woods).

This third verse was never part of the song, Guantanamera, but was written in “Versos Sencillos”

Cultivo una rosa blanca
En julio como en enero
Para el amigo sincero
Que me da su mano franca
Guantanamera, guajira Guantanamera

I cultivate a white rose
In July as in January
For the sincere friend
Who gives me his honest hand.

This fourth verse is translated during the song as sung by Pete Seeger & Arlo Guthrie[3]

Y para el cruel que me arranca
El corazon con que vivo
Cardo ni ortiga cultivo
Cultivo la rosa blanca
Guantanamera, guajira Guantanamera

And for the cruel one
who would tear out this heart with which I live
I do not cultivate nettles nor thistles
I cultivate a white rose

Final verse of song, as published:

Con los pobres de la tierra
Quiero yo mi suerte echar
El arroyo de la sierra
Me complace más que el mar
Guantanamera, guajira Guantanamera

With the poor people of the earth
I want to share my fate
The brook of the mountains
Gives me more pleasure than the sea
