Time magazine publishes special edition on Cuba

Posted: 19-Jun-15 19:01

Popular California-based U.S. magazine Time, recently published a new special number on Cuba, entitled "Inside the new Cuba, discovering the charm of a once-forbidden island: the people, the culture, the paradise". The special edition is a 95-page-long book that aims to introduce the Cuba of today to its American readers.

Time magazine publishes special edition on Cuba

This Tuesday U.S. magazine, TIME, published a special edition number on Cuba that is now being sold across supermarkets all over the country. The cover of the 95-page book couldn’t be more evocative of all that Cuba represents with four different images illustrating different aspects of Cuban culture that also reflect the island’s irresistible tourism appeal.

One of the images shows a group of uniformed school children smiling at the camera, another a classic American car from the 50s that has managed to survive over five decades of embargo in a cobbled street setting. A third photograph shows folkloric musicians and dancers while the last one is a picture of the iconic Malecon seawall.

The title of the book aptly reads:

“Inside the new Cuba, discovering the charm of a once-forbidden island: the people, the culture the paradise.”

In the book readers will find articles about the re-establishment of diplomatic relationships between the two nations and the possibilities an end to the travel embargo would bring: from the ability of to buy the coveted Cuban cigars to travelling freely to the island as tourists and engaging with a culture that has been off-limits for over 50 long years.

The back over is yet another invitation to Cuba as it features a full-page advertisment of online lodging company, Airbnb, which specialises in B&B properties all over the world and now includes in its collection a total of 2000 casas particulares (homestays) in Cuba. It’s all a clear reflection of how times are changing and how Americans are on the verge of getting a fuller flavour of Cuba.
