Summary

Cuba today looks and feels like a nation at the end of a long, hard war. Crippled by an American blockade, with a communist system that has delivered first-rate health care but atrocious standards of living, most of its population are more used to getting around onhorse-drawn carts, clapped-out Cadillacs, rickshaw taxis or, in the capital, dirty overcrowded buses. Peter Millar jumps aboard a railway system that was once the pride of Latin America and is now a crippled casualty case to undertake a railway odyssey the length of Cuba in the dying days of the Castro regime. A journey everyone will want to read about but nobody in their right mind would want to emulate!
