Cuba is neither lacking in cinemas, theatres or libraries. The films 'Fresa y Chocolate', 'Cuba Feliz' and 'Calle 54'; not to mention the various writers and film directors inspired by the island. Think of Cuba and you may think of the great Hemingway and more recently, Wim Wenders. Read the books and watch the films before leaving. And finally, once there, open your eyes and ears; in Cuba, the culture is found on the streets.
