Episode Summary

Cuba & Haiti
Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, bigger than the sizes of all the other islands combined. Americans are banned there. Two countries are on the island of Hispaniola, with Haiti on the West and the Dominican Republic on the East. The culture and people of the two countries on the same island are very different. Join Ian Wright as he explores and gives some fascinating insight into history, culture and social conditions of two countries that have barely been touched by mass tourism. In Cuba Ian visits tobacco country, the home of Salsa, a rodeo and a marine park. In Haiti, Ian visits a peasant carnival, a cock fight and a voodoo ceremony.moreless
