I took a day´s tour with Art-Havana (art-havana.com), an online gallery created to meet the growing international demand for Cuban art, who also arrange guided tours of artists´ studio-homes... I learned more about modern Cuba from these artists in one day than I did in the rest of my two-week trip. “How the other Hav lives” —Gavin McOwan, The Guardian, Saturday January 26 2008 Gavin McOwan
