In February 2000, writer Lea Aschkenas finds her way to Cuba with plans for a short visit. Already a seasoned traveler when she arrives, she soon finds herself caught up in the contradictions of Cuban life and the people's unique blend of innocence, resignation, and resolute optimism. Over the course of an extended stay and a later return sojurn on the island, Aschkenas falls in love with the country and with one of its companeros. In Es Cuba, Aschkenas crafts a moving tale of culture and politics, history and romance, and how they all collide and coexist when two people from conflicting countries fall in love.

Having traveled to Cuba twice, I found this book extremely enlightening. I fell in love with this island as this author did. REading about the people and the every day life of this intriguing place was very eye opening and entertaining.
