This June Mike Blamires, Principal Lecturer, Faculty of Education at Canterbury Christ Church University, visited farms and rural community projects around Puerto Padre and Las Tunas in Cuba.

He participated in a Community and Rural Development Conference and also visited Camaguey and Havana finding change having an impact on some areas more than others. He listened to Cuban friends and colleagues he has known for more than 10 years to gain their perspective. Along the way he found socialist Karaoke, the Carlos Teceros Shopping Mall, Santieran ceremonies and bric a brac as well as the troubling sanctity of the Princess Diana Memorial Garden in old Havana!
