About the Author
Mary Jane Walker is a writer of historically well-informed travel memoirs, with her own unique voice. A Maverick Cuban Way is the third book in a series of eight. Mary Jane always wanted to visit Cuba, an island which conjures up images of revolution, romance and roaming back in time. Being a Maverick, it is just so fitting to go to Cuba, an island which rejected America's way of doing things. So too did the author's home country New Zealand, in a smaller way: it rejected visits from nuclear-powered submarines (Mary Jane at age 15 kicked one of these) and vessels carrying nuclear weapons, and declared itself nuclear free, and was excluded from a military alliance because of that. Mary Jane travelled the whole island in three weeks and loved it. She was in a beachside restaurant when Harry Belafonte turned up; went to the Sierra Maestro Mountains where Fidel hid as a guerrilla for 18 months; and climbed Pico Turquino, the highest peak in Cuba. She met and spoke with taxi drivers, academics and locals from all over Cuba. Though the country is poor many are happy, and do not want to see a society with a major income divide re-emerge.

Something I would refer to as "Stick ability" and good for her, ( Cuba)
Would this book encourage me to visit Cuba, " I reckon" and the country needs the tourists, so yes I would book a seat on a plane.
As long as I bumped into Mikalena what a star and a font of knowledge.
I'm also going to apply for a job with UNESCO wow what a job.
In closing and post review in find myself humming the tune "Guantanmera"
Well written Mary Jane, already onto the next Maverick Traveller episode. Thank you.
