Fidel Castro’s 90th birthday marked with world’s longest cigar
Jose Castelar Cairo, a72-year-old Cuban better known as “Cueto,” has been rolling cigars since he was five.
He already held the world record for the longest cigar rolled but now he’s breaking his own record to help mark the 90th birthday of Cuba’s retired revolutionary leader Fidel Castro. Castro ruled Cuba for a half century. He was often seeing puffing his favorite, slim cigars until he quit the habit in the 1980s’.
Cueto’s record-long cigar took ten days to roll with the help of assistants in this colonial era fort in Havana. The monster cigar is the length of a soccer field.
