Sandy Cameron of Deer River recently visited Cuba, but stayed away from the tours and tourists.  He and his wife stayed in private homes, including one in Cenguey.  Their hosts were black, and in their living room they had this 3-foot high wood carving, which Sandy says tells us something of the real Cuba.  He talked with Michael Goldberg, on the travel segment of weekly program Stay Human, Sundays at 10 pm.
