Descriptions Cuba

From revolution to embargo, from the charms of old Havana to the beaches of the Bay of Pigs, from the hypnotic rhythms of Caribbean music to voodoo influences, Cuba is a country of passion and complexity, a political dinosaur on the verge of dramatic change. Travelers’ Tales Cuba is an eye-opening literary ensemble, in which Cuba emerges with all its strengths and weaknesses, convictions and contradictions.

* Swivel your hips with Stephanie Elizondo Griest as she dances with Havana’s mistress of rumba
* Pick up hitchhikers with Dave Eggers and meet the starting center for the Cuban women’s national basketball team

* Learn the Cuban secret to life–making the most of what you have–with Cristina Garcia
