The Handsomest Man in Cuba: An Escapade
Genres Travel Writing
An engaging, witty account of the people, customs, food, and culture of Cuba framed by a fascinating approach to travel. With only a folding bicycle and a towable suitcase, Australian Lynette Chiang spent three months touring Cuba, eschewing tourist hotels and typical itineraries in favor of an unpredictable day-to-day existence among ordinary citizens. She discovered a people who, despite great privation, are warm, generous-and generally happy. Her narrative covers equally well the challenges of travel on two wheels and the surprises of life in the land of Fidel.
