What they may or may not think in Havana
A barber works in a makeshift barbershop in Havana April 10, 2007. While the outside world watches Fidel Castro's slow recovery from stomach surgery and speculates about Cuba's future, talk in Cuba is still more about the daily battle to stretch one's income than the politics behind it. Older Cubans get tearful at the idea of a post-Castro Cuba. Younger Cubans say they are tired of living in a time warp. But in a country with no public opinion polls and a state-run media it's hard to measure what Cubans really think, and there is a long-held reluctance to criticize the one-party communist system to foreigners.
Not sure where they got that bit about older Cubans getting all tearful at the prospect of a future without the 80-year-old dictator. Who knows?
But I think they are right about younger Cubans being sick and tired of “living in a time warp”.
