Havana: all quiet on the streets

For the last three weeks, I have been relying on the Cuban media for information. No foreign newspapers are available anywhere at any price, and my internet access has been sporadic. For all I know, there could have been a small nuclear war somewhere, without me hearing a thing about it.

So thanks to the commenters on the last post, who have alerted me to the rumours that FC has kicked the bucket. Some sources online even suggest that a military coup may be in the offing.

All I can add here is that life in Havana is absolutely unchanged since last Sunday's dramatic announcement over el comandante's health. No tanks on the streets or anything, and the population is going about its business as ever.

Hope there isn't a coup this weekend. It would rather spoil my sightseeing plans.
