7 Day Program Havana/ Viñales/ Trinidad

There is an urban legend in my country. I have heard it (over and over again) from my mom, my friends… It goes about an American journalist that came to Cuba on the 70's in order to understand and get to know Cuban people. When he returned to the USA he finally wrote a report narrating his experiences
and the result was. . . well, let's say shocking. He said he learned it all, and understood nothing!

The correspondent told about how in Cuba there was no food, but everyone ate; there were no clothes, but no one was naked; there were no shoes and still, no one was barefoot… How was this possible? The reporter continued: Why are the markets empty, there is no electric power and Cubans are smiling and joyful all the time? Cuba is and it always will be a mystery.

I don't really know how much truth lays in this story, maybe over the years the tale came alive and transformed, grew up, as stories usually do; but I invite you to take this journey with me and find out. . .

Shall we?
