Cuba – Viva La Revolucion!

CubaVisually speaking, Cuba is a very unique place. The mix of Caribbean lifestyle, communism with its characteristic crumbling infrastructure and American vintage cars is really quite something that is completely unique and can only be found in this combination here. Oh, and not to forget the puffing of huge rolled-up tobacco leaves in the form of cigars. It seems every good Cuban must smoke these. And then there is the Cuban messiah, Che Guevarra. Elevated to god-like status in the otherwise empty pantheon of communist gods, he provides quasi-religious dogma and political doctrine at the same time. This winning combination acts like a glue on society and helps to govern them under the communist regime. Not to forget the fight against the big enemy in the north, the USA, which distracts from internal problems and directs aggressions towards external entities.
