I am thinking of travelling to cuba in late november, i would really like to visit a coffee co-operative, where coffee is processed. Can you recommend one. where would i find out about exporting green coffee from cuba! are there any festivals on this time of the year. many thanks
Are you serious? You can’t rent a car unless you have some kind of hook ups with the government. Sure they’ll sell it to you but in the end you won’t get the car. Many tourist have had this problem.
Hector, your comment is a little misleading. Tens of thousands of visitors rent cars every year in Cuba. It may be expensive but it’s not hard to do, except during the peak seasons when yes overbooking can occur which can be quite annoying if you are the one that doesn’t get the promised car.
can you recommend a coffee processing co-operative , farm to visti? what time of the year is the coffee harvests?
We will be in Veradero Beach from January 3 to 10. Are there any baseball games in the area and how would we find out about them?
Dear George, Matanzas, which plays in the city with the same name that is close to Varadero has no home games during the dates you will be there. Your choice to catch a game would be in Havana, Cienfuegos or Sancti Spiritus with games in those three cities on January 4,5,6,7,8,9.

The home teams run across the top and the visitors in each column.

!) I will be in La Havana in March for 2 weeks; I like live Cuban band music. Where can i get it ?
2) What in the best disco in La Havana ? Somebody told me there is a disco named CHE, is it good ?
I was in cuba last year and a philosophical question arose. Does it matter to have a population that can read if the majority is ignorant? Cuba keeps the people ignorant so there is no real revolution.
I suspect in every state the majority is ignorant. Literacy is a step in the right direction though. Why are you harassing future visitors to Cuba Hector?
hector, i know a country where about a quarter of the population is functionally illiterate, they can read mcdonald`s signs, and most of the population are ignoramuses in spite of the fact that every city has free public libraries. it`s sort of north of cuba. one poll found that 25% didn`t know what important event happened in 1776 and 50% didn`t know who discovered what in 1492. it has 2 main political parties. the right wing party and the right wing extremists.
. . . Today 12-07-24 was my discovery and first visit to the HT site by way of a search for articles about our GP-US Presidential candidate, Dr. Jill Stein (I am on the State Executive Committee of the Green Party of Texas). On this “fun” page, I found four differences in the photo-comparison game, then decided to look at the answers diagram of circled differences. It was amusing to me that one of my four findings was missed by the solutions diagram: the ninth difference of the eight listed is that the highest twig of the tree on the extreme right edge of the photo is gone!
. . . Seriously, I led a student university group “The Cuba Friendship Committee” at the University of Houston during the mid 1990s — we were visited by a mayor of Havana who enlightened us as to the true nature of Cuban politics (mostly young-generation people acting to work for public governmental functions locally) and we were delighted to host the Cuban Women’s Volleyball Team (graceful beauties indeed). This past year Green Party members have worked here in support of Pastors For Peace in their caravans of embargo-busting supplies, and have seen a film about the Cuban people’s heroic inventiveness in escaping dependence on oil as a major energy supplier. I share the ideas expressed by an independent Presidential candidate and personal friend, scientist Harry Braun, for a Solar Hydrogen Economy described at http://Braun2012.US and for a world-wide energy solution of a Lunar-Solar Project to supply every human on Earth with unlimited cheap electricity, proposed by another scientist, Dr. David R. Criswell, at the website http://lunarsolarpowersystem.blogspot.com
. . . As a journalist and proofreader, having read the 20-or-so self-descriptions of the Havana Times contributers, I admonish them to differentiate between the hyphen and the dash. A hyphen is usually used to join two words together, for example in a modifying adjective. But confusion arises when Internet writers don’t know the character coding to produce an em dash — the long dash to cause a pause in the flow and set off an idea within a sentence. In literature it frequently is used with no spacing (like—this) instead of “floating” with spaces (like — this), Since they don’t know how to create the dash character (coded as & # 151 ; with no spaces between the six characters), they use a hyphen instead. Some use a double-hyphen, but it can “wrap” at the end of a line. A hyphen can serve as a substitute for a dash IF it is “floated” with spaces separating it from preceding and following words (like – this). I hope the writers will become aware of this necessity for better punctuation.
