Author(s): Gail Frances Veal
As Gail travels to Cuba for the first time, her heart and mind are wide open to new experiences as she explores the complex and colourful country. Gail absorbs every detail – the classic cars, the hardworking but fun-loving people and, of course, the dogs. She falls in love with Cuba while telling its story.
It’s a proud nation founded by rebels with guns and cigars, populated by the descendants of Indigenous people and Spanish, French, British and American colonisers – a paradise of hot nights, tropical beaches and rum cocktails, mixed with bold political graffiti and persistence in the face of the US trade embargo.
Cuban dogs have good road sense is Gail’s poetic, evocative and intimate travel diary, conveying her Cuban odyssey in vivid snapshots and fascinating insights.
