Cuba: Cars & Culture
Amy S. Dane, Springfield Museums docent and world traveler
Cuban society has been changing since Fidel stepped down. Religion is practiced. Hints of private business and home ownership are emerging in this socialist yet stratified land “haves and have nots.” Art, music dance have always been central to Cuban life, and now there are changes in these fields too. Learn about Cuba today and enjoy the “time warp” of the street scene filled with spruced up cars from days of old sporting fins and shiny chrome.
