In 2014, when former U.S. President Barrack Obama lifted a fifty-year ban on travel to Cuba, many Americans took advantage and saw Cuba for the very first time. The differences amazed them.
At first, the stunning architecture overwhelms them. Cuba, especially Havana, grew quickly in the early 1900s and the intricate, vibrant buildings with Spanish, Italian, Greek, and Roman design still line the streets. And, the streets are literally a living car museum, filled with old, colorful cars, including Oldsmobiles, Chevrolets, Fords, and even a few Russian brands. It’s quite extraordinary.
The food also amazes Americans. It’s a unique, wonderful blend of Spanish, African, and Caribbean cuisines, with connections to Dominican Republican and Puerto Rican food. Many claim it’s the best they ever tasted. And, the music. Cuban music is considered the world’s most significant influential music.
Most of all, Americans notice the people. The Cuban people are warm, friendly, and captivating. Every single person offers to share their homes and food, even when they barely have anything. Americans readily admit they can be materialistic, but after they meet the Cubans, who value kindness, togetherness, and sharing over tangible items, they feel changed.
Americans also notice how the people recycle, respect the environment, and try to use natural remedies, rather than chemical (i.e. beer and rabbit pellets to control insects). Television and Internet aren’t as easily accessible, so the people gather and sit with one another and talk. They’re don’t ignore those around them and text others. They’re paying attention to family members and communicating.
Socially, the Cubans are more advanced. Gay rights are readily accepted and gender reassignment surgery is free. Cuban law dictates that women must earn the same salary as men and women make up nearly half of the Cuban National Assembly. And, the government finances education and healthcare. Most notably, black and white Cubans interact freely and freely socialize. In America, this does not happen as freely and different races tend to separate themselves. It’s slowly changing, but, again, slowly. Things may not be perfect in Cuba, but Cuba could teach America a few things.
