I couldn't help it.

Many people who put me up in their homes told me they feared being ratted out by a nosy neighbour or being blackmailed in some way for having hosted a foreigner illegally. The official casas particulares have no fear because they're doing it above board.
Away from the big business and the oppressive eye of the Communist Party, people seemed a bit happier, too. What they lacked in material wealth, they made up for in a more relaxed lifestyle. My students in rural areas certainly seemed less run down and exhausted than some of my students back in the city. . . .
