Cuba does not seem to figure greatly in our daily thoughts. Che is no longer the idol of revolting students and I suppose all that most of us know is that Castro is able to make speeches lasting seven or eight hours non-stop. I've met quite a few who have holidayed in Cuba and they all seem to have enjoyed themselves and did not mention any political tenseness. I only think of Cuba in terms of cigars.
However, I typed Cuba into the search engine during a moment of boredom and found a whole batch of blogs by his opposition. Seems that his blend of communism is not appreciated and there is a voluable group of critics.
Wonderful thing is boredom. I'd never have known had I been following some directed line of inquiry.
