From time to time I have been gifted cigars from my students. Since 2004, when the current interpretation of the Cuban embargo came into effect, the cigars I have gotten have been, well, not great. Well, I walked into class and there were about 50 Don Peppin Garcia Cuban Classic cigars on my desk. The student said she went to Don Peppin's birthday and thought of me when she saw these being handed out. VERY nice. That is the best present, from a student, that I have gotten in many years.
