I went from a vacation in Cuba, beautiful place, had fun there, the hotel was in Grand Memories in Varadero, great place, but the internet there was pretty slow and you have to pay one cuban peso which is two canadian dollars to have just only one hour

Telemundo isn't Spanish. It's Spanish speaking. Unless you'd call Fox News an English network.

The way we board airplanes make no sense. Tests have shown that boarding the plane back-to-front is much slower than the alternatives. Check out our quick video to find out why.
