The Indispensable

After 50 years of putting up with a horses behind like Fidel, it's now the horse who has become indispensable in Cuba.

The horse and buggy or, "La Araña", the two wheeled carriage where the passengers sit, is pulled by a horse and it's a cheap method of transportation. It's doesn't matter if you have Pesos, Dollars or convertible money, because the horse will be content if you give him enough grass.

The form of transportation used during the "Independence War", is once again in style, for the "slaves of communism", who don't have an American car from the 1950s or before. They ride the horse and buggy out of necessity and not out of vanity. Cubans have regressed in time.

Another achievement of the Revolution!
