The changing of the guard at Versailles was not just symbolic. "That it took a Colombian rocker to introduce us to each other, to put us Cubans on the spot (believe me, this has become a real put-up or shut-up moment) and make us talk to each other, with the whole world watching … well, it’s kind of embarrassing."
