Imagine Eat, Pray, Love meets Lonely Planet for Cuba!
My Seductive Cuba
Enough books have been written about Cuba to fill an entire library, but few take the approach Chen Lizra does with "My Seductive Cuba." Deeply personal and always engaging, Lizra - an Israeli-born dance instructor and entrepreneur now living in Canada - fuses history and politics with her real-life experiences among the people of this often-visited but little-understood island. The result is a moving portrayal of Cuba on the verge of historic change. Packed with practical information on where to go in Cuba, what to pack and the best ways to get there, "My Seductive Cuba" also helps readers ferret out persistent opportunists while finding Havana's best reggaetón, flamenco, jazz and salsa clubs. A glossary of Cuban slang and a description of the Santería religion - along with a vivid chapter titled "Getting Possessed" - makes Lizra's humorous travel guide even more compelling. This is one book you won't want to be without, even if you don't plan on going anywhere!

Excerpts: Seduction War with Girdano, and Where to Eat Local Food.
"The water was a stunning blue and we could feel the warm currents underneath us, while the cooler raindrops were falling on our heads. We were rolling with laughter, not even sure what we were laughing about. It was heavenly. I had never before been in a warm sea during a rainstorm. It’s hard to explain what was so magical about it, but it definitely marked the third highlight of my trip, after Trinidad itself and the Afro-Cuban show we saw there."
