"Que Pasa USA" and growing up Cuban in the US





For years, "Que Pasa USAwas a hilarious comedy about growing up Cuban in the US. 

It was the story of a Cuban family's struggles as "refugees" in Miami in the late 1960's or early 1970's.   

We used to call it the "refugee experience" in my household. My parents always said that we were "refugees", perphaps a reference to the politics that brought us here. 

Like most things Cuban, it included parents, very funny grandparents and a couple of teenagers who were in the middle of everything. It sounds like my own family growing up in the US! It will remind you of yours!

My favorite show was the one about the grandparents taking the US citizenship test or the Cuban garage sale!

Why was "Que Pasa USA" so good? Because it was true. It was easy to see your mom and dad on that show.   Also, who can ever forget having a Cuban sister?
