On the Open Road, Signs of a Changing Cuba
"The signs of the times speak loudly in Cuba, sometimes through their silence. A 17-hour drive across the heart of the island in a battered burgundy and gray 1956 Ford Fairlane included long stretches in which there was surprisingly little ideology on display, few of the billboards that once trumpeted revolutionary slogans. Those that remained had less of the nostalgic lilt of 'socialism or death' and more of the eager pitch of self-help books or business management bibles."
