Cuba - L'Avana [ePub]

by Brendan Sainsbury

The book I read to research this post was Lonely Planet Cuba which is a very good book which I bought at a car boot sale. The pace of life in Cuba is reminiscent and there isn't a huge amount of tourist attractions with the main attractions being the wildlife like the alligators and bee hummingbirds, the smallest birds in the world. There is a famous statue of John Lennon who with songs like Imagine later in his life he became regarded as a revolutionary by the father of this nation Fidel Castro. He is now in his 90's and his son has taken over. Cuba has such a first class health service few people wear glasses as they get laser eye surgery for free. Havana is the capital of Cuba and the country has a population of 11 million and is the largest island in the Carribean. Cuba is famed for its cigars which are reputed to be rolled by pretty women on the beaches. Something uniquely Cuban is they buy chevrolets and adapt them to have lada engines to make them cheaper to run and have compatible fuel. You can go tandem parachuting which consists of you being strapped to someone else who operates the parachute and apparently they have an excellent safety record. Cuba is famed for its pirates of days of old. In America if you wish to go to Cuba you can't use a travel agency based in America and must get a connection flight from somewhere like Mexico or Canada. There is a lot of bad feeling between the 2 countries. It's famed for its salsa music and I don't know about currently but has had a poor civil rights record with at one time Amnesty International campaigning to get over 100 prisoners of conscience out of prison. I think there are also some beaches reserved for tourists which has sparked controversy. I did quite enjoy reading this book and think it's somewhere I'd like to visit.
