Havana by American Car

I also took a ride in a Chevrolet – 1 hour for 30 Convertable Paesos (about £20). Great fun being driven in an open topped Chevrolet along the coast and up into the hills of Havana. The Chevrolet was in mint condition and my driver Raul told me that it belongs to his Father and that relatives in the USA send parts over for the car. This is a sign that things are changing here and that Cuba is opening up. On November 1st 2011 new lawas were passed and one such law allows Cubans in the USA to send money and gifts to their family back in Cuba. This is a massive changer and helps a lot of Cubans keep their heads above water.
