We went there to see some authentic Cuban people at home in the countryside and to see this well know valley. First of all you cannot see the valley except in a 4x4 as the roads are no more than tracks. I was also interested in photographing the ruins of the sugar industry but there are apparently none here - strange as there were 51 sugar mills and a million slaves working here in the 19th century. All you can see is a tower with a view surrounded by stalls selling tourist nick-nacks and an indifferent cafe. It used to be possible to see the valley on an ancient steam train but as a bridge has collapsed and not been repaired it no longer runs.
