Quote of the Day
"There is nothing glamorous about Cuba’s grinding poverty. The habaneros earn on average £8 a month (plus meagre state-financed rations) and although most have enjoyed a good education and many are skilled, there is little work for them outside tourism and a few service industries. That is why so many of them ... have turned into full-time hustlers."
Travel writer Graham Boynton writing in The Daily Telegraph, London, about his most recent visit to Fidel Castro's island paradise. Worth a read.
