A pumping heart trapped in a cage - wonderful, magical Cuba. Vibrance and spirit enveloped by colour and decay. Through no fault of their own, the Cuban people are stuck in the past. They want to leave their country just as much as they want to stay. They work hard for very little pay but they are rich in humour and culture. They look out for eachother. 'He is my friend. She is my friend. You are my friend. I will look after you, my friend, and I know you will look after me'. They are excited by the opportunities the lifting of the US embargo will bring not only to themselves but to their entire country. Here's hoping Cuba's beauty and unique character is preserved.
