Why Piedra Fina? Back in the day, in Cuba, "La Charada" was a lottery system in which an object, animal or person represented a number. So that if, for example, you dreamt of a nun riding a bicycle while eating a coconut, you would play numbers 5, 52 and 70. Growing up in a Cuban household, in Venezuela, I often heard my parents mention different numbers and what they meant. They were sometimes funny, others absurd and often irreverent.
Homes in Venezuela have names rather than numbers, making it very confusing to find your way so that a typical address might be something like "Quinta Mi Amor, entre Pelota y La Gorda" ("My Love" house, between the corners of Ball and Fat Lady streets). When my parents built their dream home they called it Piedra Fina which is represented by the number 25, my dad's lucky number and his birth day.
