4.0 out of 5 stars
travel options in Cuba, 27 Dec. 2013
Having spent 5 days at Santiago with the intention of flying to Havana and then returning by train, this travelers tale confirms why we did not attempt the trip. Having looked at the type of aircraft that were available on that route we decided that it would not be a relaxing holiday journey.
Peter Millars book give a insight in to a way of life that can only come about with trying to mix a market economy with a Utopian centrally dominated economy. Whilst some elements of the Cuban life has some advantages over our Western ways, the author paints a picture of a country that is worn out.
A very entertaining book and a good read.
