There’s a side of Cuba you’ve seen before, and a side that you have not. For years, Karin Muller has heard people arguing over Cuba. Some say it’s a tropical paradise, filled with healthy, happy people. Others – a police state where almost everyone is trying to escape.

So Karin decided to go there for three months – undercover – and find out the truth for herself. The answer was not what she expected – and it all started with the local pizza joint.

Amazingly, the Cuban people have fascinating personalities – funny, creative, patient, friendly, ingenious. Karin concludes that, no matter what the country’s politics or economics are – they are our neighbors. It’s been fifty years, isn’t it time we started talking again?
