I remember being interested to note that Brazil has a high
concentration of Japanese martial arts schools, particularly for
aikijiujitsu and aikido, apparently.
The people who got a rather raw deal, though, were the Chinese who
left China in 1949, not wishing to live under a communist regime.
Where did a lot of them go?
Cuba. Of course.
Well, it _seemed_ like a good idea at the time...
