Item Details

An engaging, witty account of the people, customs, food, and culture of Cuba framed by a fascinating approach to travel. With only a folding bicycle and a towable suitcase, Australian Lynette Chiang spent three months touring Cuba, eshewing tourist hotels and typical iteneraries in favor of an unpredictable day-to-day existence among ordinary citizens. She discovered a people who, despite great privation, are warm, generous#151;and generally happy. Her narrative covers equally well the challenges of travel on two wheels and the surprises of life in the land of Fidel. Read more about Lynette at http://www.galfromdownunder.com/cuba/
