The Hershey train
|Cuba's Hershey electric train runs between Matanzas and Havana.|
I wasn't worried. If the Hershey electric train didn't happen to be running on the day I planned to take it, well, I could always try the next day. And if it broke down somewhere in the countryside, I knew that the Via Blanca highway was never more than a few kilometres to the north. I could hitch or hire a ride to Havana or back to Santa Cruz del Norte.
In the next few entries, I'll tell you about my ride on the Hershey train.
