Cuba, far from being the ogre that it is portrayed in the right wing Western media is a socially responsible country that wants to help every individual when it comes to health and medicine. Something that Fidel became personally involved in. Which other leader of a country would have done that for its citizens? Cuba’s biotechnological revolution
We came across this un-restored car when visiting friends in Cuba. These cars are a moving museum, part of Cuba’s cultural history and there is no way that they should be allowed to be exported out of the country. They are a tribute to the Cuban people and the inhumane blockade exacted on them by the United States.
This is a report from Al Jazeera on some of the amazing work accomplished by Cuban medical personnel. I’m fortunate to know personally a Cuban Neurologist and a nurse and this article could be talking about them. http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2015/04/cuba-medical-magicians-150430073632978.html
All over Cuba you can see statues of Jose Marti. Here he presides over the very pretty plaza in the city of Sancti Spiritus. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk
It was actually a small dog resting it’s legs. Seen here sitting on the doorstep of what I suspect is the owner’s house in Sancti Spiritus. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk
Sancti Spiritus is a small city in Cuba. It has a very pretty centre and the people are really friendly. Near the centre, on one day when we were there recently, I saw this Opel Kapitan in good condition. The owner must be a big Che fan as there is an image of the great man on the headlights of the car.

This cat was not phased by the people coming and going into this building which I think was one of the new shops being operated in the city of Sancti Spiritus in Cuba. Truly a cool cat. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk
