FRANK goes to CUBA

El Yuma just got wind of the alternative magazine Frank's new number on C-U-B-A.


Go here or here to check it out.

From the editor's note:

"As far as political notoriety goes, Cuba punches far above its weight. The feisty Caribbean nation is well known for playing “David” in a longstanding conflict with its nextdoor neighbor, and still Fidel Castro and Che Guevara remain two of the most recognized characters in contemporary history.

Despite Cuba’s Internet access restrictions, questionable interpretations of free press, and a zero-tolerance trade and travel embargo, Frank Chapter 42 presents a fresh, bold look at the country that is so close, and yet so far. Beyond any cliches of rum, “revolucion,” salsa, and cigars, we reveal a country steeped in the sort of mid-20th-century tradition we in more technologically advanced societies can only lament. We also discover a slowly changing political and social landscape, populated by a resilient and creative people who are dealing with a new leader for the first time in almost 50 years.

To be a Cuban means to be hardened by a life that is not always easy, but possesses an undeniable romance thanks with some of the best music, food, dance, music, art, and scenery in the Caribbean."
