Transportation in Cuba is like nowhere else. Because of economic hardship and also due to the fact that private automobile
ownership is very uncommon, transport has taken on it's own unique sights. For the tourists, modern world-class buses, taxis
and rental cars are readily available, but for local Cubanos it is another matter entirely. Pictured here in Havana is the
ubiquitous El Camello (the Camel) Metrobus. The nickname is well deserved because of it's two hump appearance, but these large
people movers solve the needs of mass transport very well. There is even camel artwork on the back of the busses (inset). One
other very common mode of transport for Cubanos is via motorcycle, and you will often see whole families aboard these two-wheeled
vehicles. The most I have ever seen was five people (two adults, three children) on one motorcycle. Not withstanding
the age and state of repair of many vehicles, Cubans are well disiplined and courteous drivers with good road disipline.
