Araña vs Máquina. An Araña is a typical horse buggy that serves as transportation for many rural Pinareños and Cubans alike. The road we are on is lost on google maps and barely visible through the blur on satellite. This is normality in Cuba... a normality that is trying to push into modernity with struggling on how to get there. For the meantime, an araña will do. Even if it gets us there slower.
