Twenty-five years after the fall of the Berlin Wall both leaders Castro and Obama decided to “cut loose the shackles of the past”. Last december’s conversations between the two countries have opened hope for better relations between the two neighbours.
I found myself exploring a country full of paradoxes. A country where a large part of the people have an advance level of academical education but where the access to any foreign culture is restricted.
A country where most of the people cannot obtain a visa and where foreign products enter mostly in the suitcases of travellers coming in. Because of its beauty and vestiges of the past, traveling in Cuba feels like stepping into an open sky museum.
The absence of excess consumerism and advertising makes it a place where communication between people, entertainment and social relations are more present than in any other countries i have had the chance to visit.
