Contents/Summary

Summary
Here comes the 'chivichana', a new and unique invention for quick and comfy travel! It's a challenge to traditional mules and horses, it's fast and cheap – it's the pride and joy of the inventive local Cuban villagers. La chivichana will get you down to the city in no time, it'll serve as an ambulance, if that's what you need – it even helps the farmers to get their goods to market. La chivichana – the first choice of the brave and experimental villagers in Cuba. A kind and ironic view of how creativity can help make a virtue of necessity.
