Nelida Fernando

Friday night at Plaza Bohemia was full of nice surprises for me.  People I hadn’t seen in a long time were there.  As I was about to leave, I spotted Nely.  She told me about all the traveling she is doing at 80, and had a teaching tour this year to the USA and Japan.  There are lots of videos of her with Pocho on YouTube, and she even has a Facebook page.  Nely and Pocho met as teenagers, had lives with other spouses, and finally married in 2009.
