about

In Cuba Unspun Rosa Jordan introduces readers to Cubans in all walks of life, people whom she has met during travels around the island by bike, bus, plane, train, truck, and car. Familiar places like Havana and Varadero are viewed from unfamiliar angles and serve as starting points for adventures that began in 1996 and continue into the future. Jordan has camped in a military compound, spent a rainy night in the jungle without a tent, cycled through hurricane-devastated coastal towns, run into a friend at a gay pride parade in the capital, picked up hundreds hitchhikers, come face to face with Fidel, and much more. It is a trip through time as well as space, recording changes in Cuba over the past 15 years and offering analyses of Cuban history and its present leadership that holds many surprises.
