This year was no exception and guests attending the number-one international gathering on premium cigars on the face of the earth took a closer look at tobacco as they learned how the leaves that are eventually rolled into habanos -a product that has become a tangible testimony of Cuban culture- are born in the first place. For some it was their first-time meeting with the larger-than-life plantations; for other it was a repeat. However, the visit allowed guests to see how the crop is harvested and learn straight from the planters’ mouths on tobacco production in ...

Travel video about destination Cuba. Basking in the Caribbean sun, the island of Cuba lies between sun and socialism, rumba and revolution. Havana is the capital. In 1553, the Spanish conquerors designated Havana’s harbour as a collection point for ships loaded with gold and silver from the new Spanish colonies and named the settlement, San Cristobal De La Habana.La Bodeguita Del Medio was once Hemmingway`s local and nowhere else is the ‘Mojito’ mixed better: three year old white rum, lime juice, soda, sugar, ice and mint. Whether it be the Teatro Marti, the Old Tobacco Factory, the famous Bacardi house, or the Floridita Bar, everywhere there is a feeling of nostalgia. When the Daiquiri is served, one almost expects Fidel Castro to be sitting at the next table. Pinar Del Rio is a small but busy town in which the Red Star and portraits of Che Guevara are displayed for all to see. In the old town, colourful houses with beautiful pillared corridors demonstrate the former wealth of the country’s independent tobacco growers. Time means little here. While observing life on the streets, one begins to think in the same relaxed tempo of the leisurely-smoked cigars. A visit to a tobacco factory is a must. Cuba’s cigars are world famous. Together with sugar, tobacco is the country’s most important export. The oldest geological formation in Cuba are the Mogotes, well-weathered limestone peaks which, supported by pillars, once covered a large complex of caves. Over many decades, subterranean rivers flooded the earth below and thus created these gigantic grottos. On seven manmade islands in the centre of the Cienaga De Zapata National Park, is the Indian village of Guama. This swampy nature reserve with its dense mangrove forest vegetation offers an ideal sanctuary for many rare water birds. No Cuban town has changed as little in two hundred years than that of Trinidad. In the 18th century, the city experienced great wealth and recognition due to the cultivation of sugar cane and the luxurious palaces and villas of the sugar barons still leave their mark on the city. Rich green tropical forests, tobacco country at the foot of mysterious mountain caves, humid tropical swamps, history, cigars and rum. Cuba is a colourful cocktail

Wide of people walking in street past figure of St. Lazaro STORYLINE Cuba formally authorised the creation of its first non-agricultural cooperatives on Tuesday, a measure expected to permit the growth of midsize businesses as part of President Raul Castro's plan to open the economy to some liberalisation. While agricultural collectives have been around since the 1990s, these will be the first worker-run non-farm co-ops to exist after decades in which the Cuban state has controlled nearly the entire economy. It's too early to say whether Cuba's move towards more capitalism will pay off. The average salary for workers remains very low, with the average wage around 20-30 US dollars per month (15 to 23 euros/month). The low pay makes shopping at agricultural cooperatives a challenge for some. More than 200 co-ops will be established in an initial trial period in sectors from transportation and construction to fishing and services, Communist Party newspaper Granma reported. The state will also lease out businesses such as restaurants and repair shops for their employees to run cooperatively. The rules say a cooperative can be formed by three or more Cuban nationals. For restaurant owners, the challenges of finding goods and services make running a business highly unpredictable. "In some cases, in the city there are some small open spaces that sometimes we can pay someone to produce something for us. They can grow something under cover," said Havana restaurant owner Laura Escobar, "but it's very complicated." For other services, like hairdressers or barber shops, where the workers will be allowed to rent the establishments from the state, the picture is a bit brighter. "I think the system of renting is very good. We will all benefit, the country and us individually," said hairstylist Teresa Ponte while she gave a man a trim a barber shop in central Havana. Castro's five-year plan of gradual reform has seen other measures like the leasing of state land to independent growers, the legalised sale of cars and real estate and eased restrictions on travel.

Francisco Lazo Díaz tobacco plantations in San Juan y Martínez One of the most anticipated events within the Habano Festival is no doubt the visit to the world’s finest tobacco plantations in Pinar del Rio’s Vuelta Abajo, Cuba. This year was no exception and guests attending the number-one international gathering on premium cigars on the face of the earth took a closer look at tobacco as they learned how the leaves that are eventually rolled into habanos -a product that has become a tangible testimony of Cuban culture- are born in the first place. For some it was their first-time meeting with the larger-than-life plantations; for other it was a repeat. However, the visit allowed guests to see how the crop is harvested and learn straight from the planters’ mouths on tobacco production in that special neck of the woods. This time around, the adventurous attendees visited the Cooperativa de Créditos y Servivios (CCS) V Congreso del Partido, run by producer Francisco Lazo Díaz in San Juan y Martínez. This cooperative is tasked with harvesting shade-grown tobacco whose wrappers are used in the making of habanos. According to what several tobacco growers said, 2017 has been off to a great start, with great weather conditions for the crop, a situation that bodes well for this year’s outputs and is music to the ears of those who plan on attending habano festivals in coming years, and of course, for whoever loves the world’s top-of-the-line cigars.

Summer 2009" 11. Travelling shot from ox to tractor plowing field 12. Tilt down from passing tractor to plow being pulled 13. Zoom in tractor leaving filed followed by oxen STORYLINE Can an ox be a hero of the Cuban Revolution? Omar Andalio thinks so. The 37-year-old farmer with a state-run cooperative is proud of the two government-owned beasts he is coaxing through a sugarcane field in western Cuba. For reasons no one can remember, the plumper one is named Caramel, even though he's white, and his caramel-hued field-mate is known as Lightweight _ never mind that he's nearly 1,000 pounds. In China, 2009 is the Year of the Ox. The animal could be in for a big year in Cuba too, if Raul Castro has his way. "Like President Raul Castro said in his speech, we have to make an offensive attack with our oxen and we need to save. We are in a time when saving is necessary. And that's what we're doing, we're going on the offensive with the oxen" Andalio says. As the cash-strapped government looks to slash deficits and pay down debt, the president has said a yoke of oxen can often do the same work as gas-guzzling farming equipment. In an address before parliament, Castro said officials plan to expand a pilot program promoting small-scale farming which began last year. "For this program we should forget about tractors and fuel, even if we had enough. The idea is to work basically with oxen," he said. "An increasing number of growers have been doing exactly this with excellent results." Cuba gets nearly 100,000 free barrels of oil a day from Venezuela, but it can't afford to import more and thus has begun an aggressive campaign to conserve crude. "The whole topic of fuel is chaotic now and we are moving forward with Oxen," says Andalio, wearing a sweat-stained straw hat and nearly knee-length, black-rubber boots. He and 300 other state employees grow cane, low-quality tobacco, sweet potatoes and bananas in San Diego de los Banos, a town 95 miles (150 kilometers) west of Havana with stunning views of limestone mountains in the distance. The cooperative has 24 oxen and eight tractors _ two of which are clawing through nearby terrain cooked hard by a recent drought. Each tractor can do the work of five teams of oxen, according to Andalio Aid from Venezuela and governmental reforms have revived Cuba's economy, and this summer's austerity programs pale in comparison to the sacrifices of the 1990s.

(31 Dec 2002) Prisoners Allied troops in Afghanistan faced the difficulty of looking after and punishing the enemy troops captured over the past year. Detainees in Sheberghan prison, the largest Taliban detention facility in Afghanistan, endured a grim reality. The cells were damp, wet underfoot and freezing cold. The US army identified every prisoner using DNA and photographs. In March several hundred prisoners were freed after spending five months in Sheberghan The US said they were young men recruited by the Al Qaida network, but who had never actually taken part in fighting. The worst offenders were sent to the US Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. The camp, which became known as 'Camp X-ray', was of growing concern to human rights groups. Inmates, dressed in bright orange jump suits and knitted caps, were kept in open cages and interrogated for long periods of time. They were not allowed access to their families or lawyers. But officials who visited the camp said they were in good health and able to talk freely and openly.

Following the fall of the anti-drugs Taliban, tens of thousands of farmers rushed to start growing poppies again. Afghanistan regained its title as the world's biggest opium producer. When Karzai took office, he was quick to introduce a poppy ban, and moved to crack down on violators.

In the Hindu Kush area, thousands of people were found living on grassy roots and plants to survive. Abdul Ghias was one of those who had nothing with which to feed his family before aid arrived in the villages further down the mountain. He was able to fetch a sack of wheat for his family. But other more remote villages remained out of the reach of aid. Those displaced by the years of war faced a long struggle to rebuild their lives. Despite the new administration and a fragile peace, for many life continued as before, inhabiting sprawling refugee camps, their homes destroyed.

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Mauritania Oviedo, State Agriculture Representative and Stand Manager: "We sell by supply and demand. Farmers come here, people who grow fruit in their backyards and we buy from them. Then we sell it at an adequate price." 19. Pan of roadside stall STORYLINE Cuba has upped already-high gasoline prices by about 10 percent amid sweeping changes to the economy, a move that led to grumbling among cash-strapped islanders, particularly private taxi drivers who are not allowed to raise their own prices. The government also announced that they would extend the right across the island for small farmers and home growers to sell their crops directly to the public. The changes, which took effect on Monday, were announced in the Communist Party-newspaper Granma, which cited rising international prices for the gasoline move. It was the first time prices have risen since September 2008, when crude oil internationally sold for about a third more than it does now. The cost of diesel fuel - used by many of the old cars that populate Cuba's streets - rose to 1.19 US dollars a litre, about 11 cents a litre higher than previously. The highest octane fuel rose even more to 1.73 US dollars a litre, from 1.51 US dollars a litre. The prices approach those paid in Europe and are apparently the highest in the hemisphere, topping pump prices in Brazil and Bermuda. They are a fortune for Cubans who make the average salary of just 20 US dollars a month. But the changes are not likely to effect many islanders, a reason why past gas hikes here have not led to unrest, as they sometimes do in other developing countries. Few people on the island own a car, and those lucky enough to have been issued with a vehicle through their state-run companies usually have a monthly quota of gas paid through work. The government heavily subsidises the public transportation system on which most Cubans rely, and it did not announce an increase in those prices. Those who will take a hit are the thousands of private taxi drivers who use gas-guzzling American clunkers from the 1950s or rusting cars from former Eastern Bloc countries to ferry people along set routes to and from work. In most cases, the price they charge is set at 10 pesos (about 50 cents). Even before the price hikes, many complained that high fuel costs meant it didn't pay to cruise the city looking for a fare. The gas price hikes come as the government is seeking to transform its socialist economy into a system that includes more private workers and more reliance on prices to regulate supply and demand.
