US President Barack Obama, who has arrived Sunday in the Cuban capital of Havana with a historic visit, greeted the island nation with a local expression, which is used by the Cubans while greeting in an informal situation.

HAVANA (Sputnik) — Obama, along with first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia, has arrived in Cuba in the wake of US-Cuba normalization policy. On the first day of their stay in the country, the Obamas will visit a variety of sites in Old Havana including the Cathedral, where they will be hosted by Cardinal Jaime Ortega. On Monday, the US President Barack Obama will hold a bilateral meeting with Cuban President Raul Castro to discuss a range of issues, including progress on restoring diplomatic ties and business opportunities.

Obama Arrives to Cuba With First US Presidential Visit Since 1928
Earlier, the US president used this phrase in a skit with a well-known Cuban comedian known as "Panfilo."

In the video, Panfilo is trying to make a phone call to the Meteorological Center in Casa Blanca (white house in Spanish) to find out if it will rain on the day of the baseball exhibition game between the US Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban National team, expected to be attended by Obama. Panfilo reaches Obama in the White House in Washington instead, who greets him with this expression. After a short moment of disbelief, the comedian tells Obama that he is glad about the president's visit.
