Nearly a year after his release following almost five years in a Cuban prison, former U.S. contractor Alan Gross gave an interview to CBS’ 60 Minutes about his captivity.

“It was terrible,” Gross told CBS News’ Scott Pelley. “There was it was a time of sensory deprivation for me, especially that first year. The place was infested with ants and roaches. I didn’t have any meat, really, for five years.”

Gross’ wife, Judy, gave him a hint late last year about his upcoming release in a rare phone call.

“She said, ‘Alan, we’re never going to talk like this again. You get it?’ I got it. I got it. I got it,” Gross said.

“She couldn’t say it in the clear on the phone,” Pelley noted.

“No,” Gross said. “But she was very clear in her wording n her verbiage that I was coming home.”

And when he finally left, what did he tell his Cuban captors?

“‘Hasta la vista, baby,'” Gross said.

“Seriously?” Pelley asked.
