As afternoon turns to evening in Máximo Gómez Park, named for a hero of the independence war against Spain, some three dozen mainly elderly men and a scattering of women play dominoes, banging the tiles down on the ceramic table tops. This timeless scene could be anywhere in Cuba. In fact it is on Calle Ocho, a stretch of SW8th Street in Miami, in the heart of what is known as Little Havana. With its cigar stores, Cuban restaurants, and memorial to those killed in the failed attempt to invade the country at the Bay of Pigs in 1961, Calle Ocho remains the spiritual home of exiled Cuba. But much of it has come to look like any street in gritty urban America, with its payday loan shops and cheap supermarkets. Nowadays Little Havana is full of Central Americans; most Cubans have long since moved up and out.
