As a young medical student, Guevara traveled throughout South America and was moved by the poverty, hunger, and disease he witnessed.

The Hershey is the only surviving old style interurban electric railway in the western hemisphere. It takes about four hours to ride the line from just outside Havana to Matanzas, a city that lies 140 km to the east. Three trains depart each terminal each day, they meet at the center, Hershey, exchange batons and continue on. There are no signals and its all single track with trolley wire on wood poles. Two older, but heavily rebuilt cars still exist for railfan and tourist group charter, but I did not video them. In December, the climate felt as comfortable as it is gorgeous on the day of this shooting. I hope all serious railfans take this journey of discovery of rural Cuban life via inter urban railway. Music by Puente Latino "Takes You There".

Traveller Ian Wright skydives onto a Havana beach, where he begins his journey through Cuba & Haiti. He explores the bustling street markets in Havana and discovers the back-streets which throb to the sound of the Rumba.

Camaguey is the wild west of Cuba. Ian tries his hand at rodeo and visits a paladar. Just outside Holguin he visits a marine park where he swims with the dolphins. S...
