A farmer decorates his stall as he waits for the urn with the ashes of Cuban leader Fidel Castro to be driven through the streets of Las TunasCamagüey (Cuba) (AFP) – A convoy is carrying Fidel Castro’s ashes across a Cuban countryside stuck in the bleak economy he left behind: Farmers plowing with oxen, people traveling in horse carts and stores lacking basic goods.
