Cuba Car Engine

Yes, it is an old car; now show me what is under the bonnet. The body of a car bores me to death, excessively simple, just another pretty face, I want to see the engine, yesterday I was lucky, a man was working in the street, and this is not that common here in Cuba. This country is organized, clean, and rich, however maybe boring.

i am very disappointed in your Cuba comments - you keep making broad statements about
Cuba, when it appears to me, all you've seen is Havana. Imagine someone commenting
on Columbia based on a week in Bogota -

Considering you have the advantage of speaking the language, I would have thought you
would get much more - instead you are looking for things that will allow you to continue
to support your preconceived ideas

A true travellor has an open mind and an open spirit - I have been to Cuba twice- did not stay in a 5 star hotel - mingled with the locals and learned a great deal about what life it like - salaries are low and those who work in the tourist industry depend a great deal on ''things'' they receive from visitors
things that would be expensive to purchase - the tips are also something that helps them support large extended families - but

No on goes hungry in Cuba, everyone is literate, has access to health care - can the same be said of Columbia - I think not - 5 own 95 of the wealth- illiteracy is high, infant mortality high
need I say more -
