After Fidel Castro's death, a woman from Gander is remembering when she went sledding with him there.
Geraldine Maloney told CBC Radio's Weekend AM the Cuban leader was a frequent visitor to Gander International Airport when she was a child, and he was often spotted around town. Maloney said as it turns out, Castro loved snow. In fact, one winter day in the mid-1960s, she shared a tobogganing hill with him in her hometown. "He was pretty muffed up, but he was all excited. He was like a child when it came to getting on the toboggan and going for a run." Photo by the Gander Historical Society. #cbcnews #fidelcastro #cuba #gander #newfoundland
