Cuba is changing and rapidly so really pleased to have had the opportunity of visiting when we did.That said the more rural areas are like taking a step back in time, horse and cart are the main method of transportation, crowded, rust ridden buses full of smiling faces. We pass small villages where every trade was taking place in the streets, some taking bicyles apart, some making parts for those wonderful American cars, some with the odd chicken or pile of mango's to sell - all wave as we pass on our way. In the cities and main towns it's another story. Young, in their skimpy outfits and old in more traditional attire out enjoying themselves dancing away. Some clutch mobile phones - some clutch a more important comidity - their bottle of rum! Again, smiling and welcoming faces.
