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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
