  1. The photo reminds me of Fidel Castro’s statement when the Special Period began in the 1990s. He said something like “If we have to go back to nineteenth century conditions to survive, we will do so.” Apparently, Cuba is still stuck in the nineteenth century. Then again, Castro apologists will probably praise that the depicted mode of transportation is picturesque, does not create pollution, and the horse helps manuring the fields.
