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...
