Cuban travel company Cubanacan has prepared a brochure for the island, alluringly entitled “Do the Cubanacan”. The Diary can confirm, having recently visited the island, that many of the brochure’s claims hold true.
But Cubanacan has a little to learn about the sort of purple prose and euphemism that usually features in tour brochures. At the discotheque “Espanta SueÃÂ±os” in the Caribbean town of Santiago the brochure explains “tourists mingle with Cuban models and entrepreneurs and dance to salsa and rhumba”.
Having visited that particular night spot, the Diary can think of other ways to describe “Cuban models and entrepreneurs”, which would be entirely inappropriate for a family paper such as this.
