With An Innocent in Ireland (1995), David McFadden began his eccentric journeys to the heart of some of the world's most unique island nations. Now McFadden rambles through the highs and lows of Cuba, home to cigars, Guantanamera, and of course Castro. The beautiful Caribbean landscape, along with Cuba's rich history, culture, and uncertain future, lend themselves to the quirky eye and wry witticisms of our innocent Canadian guide.

Poking into the nation's many corners, McFadden offers a series of vignettes of the people, cities,villages, roads, and countryside of the island the author refers to as "the most famous little country in the world." Warm and colourful, An Innocent in Cuba is a musical, sensuous, flirtatious, joyful tribute to the Cuban spirit in all its incarnations.

This is a nice read and a good intro to Cuba. The author does tend to notice and describe in detail the pretty girls of Cuba while claiming to have no interest. Other than that tiresome detail I would recomend this to anybody who wonders about the country.
