    Description: I have twice stayed in and highly recommend the house of Lillian Lechuga, which is located at Calle 36A entre 7ma y 42, Miramar, Playa, in western Havana. Lillian is a journalist and comes from a noted family of journalists and diplomats. You will be very well looked after, with a room and private bathroom in a very quiet and comfortable apartment with good privacy and internet access in the house (a rarity in Cuba). The house has easy access to the máquinas that take you to Vedado (5-10 minutes) and Habana Vieja (about 15 minutes).

    Lillian's contact info is lillianlechuga@gmail.com.Write in Spanish or English.

    Description: If researching in Havana, I highly recommend staying with Raysa Toledo and Orlando Fernandez-Adan. They live at c/17 1251, e/20 y 22, in Vedado. I've stayed with them on two occasions (for a total of 4 months) and have found their house quite hospitable for researching/writing. Their number (in Havana) is 830 3774; email fdezadan@infomed.sld.cu.

    A good friend of mine, a former academic, has recently restored her
    early 20th-century neo-classical townhouse and converted it into a
    registered bed and breakfast. The rooms are perfectly clean, beautiful,
    with bathroom inside, and all the wood furniture has been handmade by
    Cuban artisans. It's very central, in the Vedado neighborhood and within
    easy walking distance to the University of Havana, and the owner is
    reliable and well-connected to the academic world. I have a jpg with
    more info and some photos that I can send, but best to contact Alina

    While in Cuba this summer, I met Mariam Gras, Ph.D. who rents rooms in her home, Calle 46 #3505 e/ 35 y 37, Municipio Playa, Ciudad Habana. Teléfono: 238409.  She lost her position at the university because of her research on civil society in Cuba; she supports herself by renting rooms. People might like to know that I met her through an introduction from the US Interest Section.
