    Baruch College student Zoë Reda shares her Study Abroad experience in Cuba. For nearly 60 years, relations between the United States and Cuba have been strained due to the US trade embargo against the island nation. Although it has recently become slightly easier to visit Cuba, travel there is not as popular as it once was. So when a student studies abroad there, he/she is given the opportunity to explore the history, literature, politics and culture of Cuba. From the moment Zoë landed she was confronted with Cuba’s complex and often-contradictory reality. Nevertheless, she walked away learning more by studying abroad in Cuba than she would have in a traditional classroom setting.

  • Hershey Train (electrico en Cuba)

    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.

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Ernesto "Che" Guevara Ernesto "Che" Guevara,commonly known as el Che or simply Che, was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, author, guerrilla leader, diplomat, and military theorist. A major figure of the Cuban Revolution, his stylized visage has become a ubiquitous countercultural symbol of rebellion and global insignia within popular culture. As a young medical student, Guevara traveled throughout South America and was moved by the poverty, hunger, and disease he witnessed. His burgeoning desire to help overturn what he saw as the capitalist exploitation of Latin America by the United States prompted his involvement in Guatemala's social reforms under President Jacobo Arbenz, whose eventual CIA-assisted overthrow at the behest of the United Fruit Company solidified Guevara's political ideology.Later, while living in Mexico City, he met Raúl and Fidel Castro, joined their 26th of July Movement, and sailed to Cuba aboard the yacht, Granma, with the intention of overthrowing U.S.-backed Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Guevara soon rose to prominence among the insurgents, was promoted to second-in-command, and played a pivotal role in the victorious two-year guerrilla campaign that deposed the Batista regime. Following the Cuban Revolution, Guevara performed a number of key roles in the new government. These included reviewing the appeals and firing squads for those convicted as war criminals during the revolutionary tribunals, instituting agrarian land reform as minister of industries, helping spearhead a successful nationwide literacy campaign, serving as both national bank president and instructional director for Cuba's armed forces, and traversing the globe as a diplomat on behalf of Cuban socialism. Such positions also allowed him to play a central role in training the militia forces who repelled the Bay of Pigs Invasion and bringing the Soviet nuclear-armed ballistic missiles to Cuba which precipitated the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Additionally, he was a prolific writer and diarist, composing a seminal manual on guerrilla warfare, along with a best-selling memoir about his youthful continental motorcycle journey. His experiences and studying of Marxism--Leninism led him to posit that the Third World's underdevelopment and dependence was an intrinsic result of imperialism, neocolonialism, and monopoly capitalism, with the only remedy being proletarian internationalism and world revolution.Guevara left Cuba in 1965 to foment revolution abroad, first unsuccessfully in Congo-Kinshasa and later in Bolivia, where he was captured by CIA-assisted Bolivian forces and summarily executed. Guevara remains both a revered and reviled historical figure, polarized in the collective imagination in a multitude of biographies, memoirs, essays, documentaries, songs, and films. As a result of his perceived martyrdom, poetic invocations for class struggle, and desire to create the consciousness of a "new man" driven by moral rather than material incentives, he has evolved into a quintessential icon of various leftist-inspired movements. Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century, while an Alberto Korda photograph of him entitled Guerrillero Heroico (shown), was cited by the Maryland Institute College of Art as "the most famous photograph in the world". Santa Clara is the capital city of the Cuban province of Villa Clara. It is located in the most central region of the province and almost in the most central region of the country. Santa Clara was the site of the last battle in the Cuban Revolution in late 1958. There were two guerrilla columns that attacked the city, one led by Ernesto Che Guevara and the other led by Camilo Cienfuegos. Guevara's column first captured the garrison at Fomento. Then, using a bulldozer, Guevara's soldiers destroyed railroad tracks and derailed a train full of troops and supplies sent by Batista. At the same time, Cienfuegos's column defeated an army garrison at the Battle of Yaguajay not far from town. On December 31, 1958, the combined forces of Guevara and Cienfuegos (along with other revolutionaries under William Alexander Morgan) attacked Santa Clara. The battle was chaotic, the defenders were demoralized, some fought, others surrendered without a shot. By the afternoon, the city was captured. This victory for Castro's troops is seen as the decisive moment in the Cuban Revolution as Batista fled Cuba less than 12 hours later.

When attempting to locate these mysterious places, it is beneficial for one to be aware of past sea levels, this, of course, can make the task of locating these submerged cities an awful lot easier. The main consensus is that world sea levels have largely stayed the same since the arrival of homo sapiens only really dipping or rising by around 120 metres across the Earth. When discussing these finds, you will on all but a few exceptions find yourself within these specific regions. One of the more interesting exceptions to this rule, has to be the underwater city which was discovered just off the coast of Cuba a few years ago, a submerged city which sits over 700 metres below the waves, this depth of course, being far below that which has experienced a breach over the past hundred or so thousand years. A theory that the land mass once rested upon the surface, subsequently being sunk by tectonic activities, was argued, yet since its exploration as a possibility, it has been found to have not been the case. It seems that these exploratory analysis of the site has achieved nothing other than to make the site even more perplexing, the results of this investigation, strongly indicating that this city, and its accompanying landmass, has somehow remained under the waves for more than a hundred thousand years. Grenville Draper of Florida’s International University, concluded that it was highly unlikely that such an tectonic event could have occurred: quoted as saying “Nothing of this magnitude has been reported ever before, especially from the Mediterranean” Drapers among many others analysis, has of course come to conclusions, conclusion which thankfully appear honest, making them extremely controversial, yet as with many other fields of study in life, they are reluctant to reveal the implications of such conclusions. For example, if the research is correct, and judging by the extremely capable people tasked with this undertaking, there is no reason to suspect it is not, then this submerged city has remained submerged for over a hundred thousand years, this gives us two possible alternatives, 1. That the city predates the arrival of developed man on earth, according to academically accepted time lines. Or, 2. It reinforces our ever growing accusations here at mystery history, of a past here on earth, which is unimaginably more ancient than we have been led to believe, a human society which has flourished and regressed on no less than 3 occasions. It could of course be both, there is a possibility that this ancient city was indeed built submerged under the waves by a once highly advanced civilization of homo sapiens,. Yet a more likely scenario, of course, would be that this ancient city was constructed at a time when the Caribbean sea was a dry basin, and as the sea began to form, it was subsequently submerged. Yet, alas, modern academia readily rejects such a hypothesis, so if we do not accept this as a likely possibility, then we must conclude that a primitive ancient culture, with primitive stone tools, and certainly no diving equipment, were somehow responsible for the construction of this submerged city, complete with enormous pyramids, on a foundation resting over 700 metres beneath the Caribbean sea. http://www.ancient-origins.net/ancient-places-americas/what-happened-sunken-city-cuba-001883/page/0/1

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.

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Fidel Castro, President of Cuba "In the Congress of this powerful country, there were the islanders are sincere, intelligent and realistic, but unfortunately today they are evidently in the minority. Parodying the historic phrase of the Incu -- they can be sure in the fact that a part of them could be idiots, all of the time. All could be idiots part of the time. But not all could be idiots, all of the time." 8. audience applause 9. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Fidel Castro, President of Cuba "I think that each time that I hear parliamentarians from 120 countries, a good part of them from our poor and parched third world, the north american parliament could have at least taken the opportunity to inform itself about what others are thinking." 10. Wide shot, Castro on rostrum shaking hands. STORYLINE: Cuban President Fidel Castro spoke on Sunday to members of parliament from more than 120 countries worldwide who have flown in to attend the 105th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) conference being hosted in the capital, Havana. The President of the IPU Council, Mrs Najma Heptualla, and the President of Cuba's National Assembly of the People's Power, Mr Ricardo Alarcon, also spoke at the inaugural ceremony. In his welcome speech, Castro criticised both the United States' decision not to attend and its elected members of congress. The event runs until April 7 and talks are scheduled on issues of world peace and security as well as education and culture. The conference also provides a forum for bilateral peace talks between delegates from conflict zones, in particular the Middle East, Cyprus and the Great Lakes area in Africa. Cuba is one of seven countries taking part to have proposed an additional item for debate. Cuba has chosen the issue of international terrorism. Members of the European Parliament met with opponents of Fidel Castro's government on Monday to talk about political prisoners, the death penalty and other human rights issues. Renzo Imbeni and three other European Parliament representatives, in town for a gathering of lawmakers from around the world, spoke with reporters after meeting with seven of Cuba's best known political opponents at the home of human rights activist Elizardo Sanchez. Sanchez, head of the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and national Reconciliation, brought up the case of Vladimiro Roca, a former military pilot and jailed human rights activist serving a five-year sentence for criticizing a major document of Cuba's Communist Party. Three other opponents arrested with him have since been released.

This video shows a folkloric dance performance of the female Orisha Oya, a Yorùbá deity, as danced today in Cuba to the rhythms of the Lukumí batá drums and singing. The Yorùbá name “Ọya Ìyánsán” means literally “Oya mother of nine (children)”. Oya is the goddess in charge of wind, tornado, torrential rain and hurricans and beloved wife of Orisha Shango, who is often only called by his name Yor. “ọkọ Ọya”, husband of Oya. Like wind and thunderstorm they cannot be separated one from another. Oya was Ogun’s wife, but left him for Shango. She is also hot-tempered and energetic. In Yorùbáland Oya is the Orisha of the river Niger. In Cuba she resides at the entrance to the cemetery, where she leads the dead ones and hands them over to the female Orisha Oba and Yewa, who live inside these walls. Walking on the boundary between life and death Oya is closely related to the Yor. “Eégún”, the dead ancestors. She herself had nine stillborn children she is still protecting. With strong winds she can blow away obstacles and bring new things into the life. Oya stands for the female strength in times of struggle, respected for her strong will and fearless through her connection with the world of the deads. Oya is the female warrior goddess and also known for her strong medicines. Oya’s color is mostly burgundy or wine-red. Around her waist she wears a belt with nine different colored pieces of clothes attached, symbols for being the mother of nine dead children. Oya can wear all colors, except black. Sometimes palm fibers from the “palma real”, Shango’s tree, are added. She carries an “ìrùkẹ̀” made of a black horsetail. She can hold a “machete” or a “vaina”, a huge painted seed from the flamboyant tree, in her hands. It has the form and almost the size of a “machete” and is used like a rattle to call her. In her dance Oya moves around like a whirlwind or tornado, spins around her axis to the left. She swings her whisk above her head, brings wind and dynamic change, clears and purifies the air. She brings both arms high in the air above her head in mirrored positions and in a sudden powerful movement stretches them downwards to her hips, followed by a wave, a spinal ripple, moving through her body, going from her pelvis up where it twists the head. She is crying out loudly while dancing, looks fierce and strong, aggressive and violent, her movements are impulsive, energetic and characterized by abrupt stops. Some people say one dance of her in the rhythm “shashalokafun” is related to the buffalo, her sacred animal and the steps mimic the gallop of this massive animal. Yusimi Moya Rodriguez studied dance at the Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havana, Cuba. She worked as a dancer at the Conjunto Folklórico Nacional de Cuba for five years and is known as an expert for Afro-Cuban dance traditions. For more information see her website http://www.cubancontemporary.com The music - Cuban batá drumming and Lukumí singing for Orisha Oshun - was recorded especially for this choreography by percussionist Christian Martinek.

Here is the top list of mysterious sunken underwater cities in the world found underwater! These strange and mindblowing but also amazing forgotten ancient underwater ruins are located deep into the ocean. Check out Alexandria, City of Cuba, Yonaguni, Lake Titicaca, Pavlopetri, Lion City, Heracleion and more underwater cities!

Yonaguni Pyramids In the mid 80s, Divers found underwater rock terraces and pyramids off the coast of Yonaguni Jima. Yonaguni Jima is an island that lies near the southern tip of Japan's Ryukyu archipelago, About 75 miles off the eastern coast of Taiwan. At first scientists believed they might be natural formations, but There are quarry marks and some writing on the stones and animal statues that have also been found underwater. Now some experts believe that The structures Could be what is left of the mythical city of Mu, a fabled Pacific civilization rumored to have vanished beneath the waves. Masaki Kimura, a marine geologist from the University of Japan, Has been studying the underwater pyramids for over 15 years. The underwater structures include castle ruins, a triumphal arch, five temples and at least one large stadium, all of which are Connected by roads and water channels and are partly shielded by what could be huge retaining walls. Kimura believes the ruins date back to at least 5,000 years, based on the dates of stalactites found inside underwater caves that he says sank with the city. The theory is that the ancient underwater city Might have been sunk by an earthquake or tsunami around 2,000 years ago. Yonaguni invites tourists and researchers to dive freely around the site. 2. Sunken City of Cuba In 2001, A company called Advanced Digital Communications (ADC) was working with Fidel Castro's government to explore Cuban waters looking for sunken Spanish ships loaded with treasure. Their Sonar equipment picked up a series of geometrical structures lying on the bottom of the ocean. Here's a computer generated image of the pyramids and other structures found underwater. The structures and design made it look like there was A gigantic underwater city at the bottom of the Bermuda Triangle. The media went crazy claiming that Atlantis had been discovered in Cuba. There are local legends of the Maya and native Yucatecos that tell of an Island inhabited by their ancestors that vanished beneath the waves. If it's true the structures were made by an ancient civilization, they would have been the Most technologically advanced structures on the planet at that time. Scientists estimate that they would have been built about 50,000 years ago which doesn't seem very likely. The numerous structures and cities that have been discovered underwater around the world Lie less than 120 meters (or 395 feet) below sea level, which comes as no surprise since the sea level never fell below this mark during the time Homo sapiens walked the earth. This Cuban city, if we can call it that, is the Only exception since It is submerged over 700 meters (2300 feet) underwater. If the large structures are actually pyramids, 2 of them are Even larger than the pyramids of Giza and Cheops in Egypt. As of yet there is no plausible explanation for the existence of this city and ADC is still trying to investigate the site. 3. Lake Titicaca Lake Titicaca is Located in the Andes between Bolivia and Peru. It is the largest freshwater lake in South America and was the cradle of Peru's ancient civilizations, including the Inca. Their presence can be seen on Lake Titicaca by the ruins they left behind, including A mysterious underwater temple thought to be between 1,000 and 1,500 years old. In the Incan creation myth, The god Con Tiqui Viracocha emerged from Lake Titicaca. After commanding the sun, moon, and the stars to rise, Viracocha created more human beings from stone. After bringing them to life, Viracocha Commanded them to go and populate the world. The Incas therefore believed that Lake Titicaca was their place of origin, and that upon death, Their spirits would return to this lake. Archeologists located a huge temple in 2000 after following a submerged road (and I'm sure following advice from locals). After 18 days of diving below the clear waters of Titicaca, scientists said they had Discovered a 660-foot long, 160-foot wide temple, a terrace for crops, and a 2,600-foot containing wall along with gold and statues. It is said the lost city was Covered with sediment during a great flood of biblical proportions and local people had passed down the stories of the underwater temple and flood from generation to generation.
