Oregon Statesman Journal reporter Timothy Alex Akimoff went to Cuba this past summer and has written a five part series on his experiences. I think it is the first article or report I have read about Cuba where there is absolutely no mention of free healthcare or free education or all the other propagandist notions always expressed by foreign correspondents in Cuba.
Cuba – Day 3 is here.
Cuba – Day 4 is here.
Cuba – Day 5 is here.
These are all a bit lengthy, but very well written and rather surprising, as Akimoff seems to not suffer from the same myopia that most reporters covering Cuba do. They are refreshingly honest and are today’s must reads.
