Welcome to British Isles Friday! British Isles Friday is a weekly event for sharing all things British — reviews, photos, opinions, trip reports, guides, links, resources, personal stories, interviews, and research posts. Join us each Friday to link your British-themed content and to see what others have to share. The link list is at the bottom of this post. Pour a cup of tea or lift a pint and join our link party!
I’m afraid I’m way too focused on the Cuba trip right now to have much to give for British Isles Friday, but it turns out that I found a fun book to read while I’m visiting Havana. Our Man in Havana is by famed 20th-century British author Graham Greene. It’s a black comedy about MI6 agents written and set in the late 1950s during the Batista regime in Cuba, a time of gangsters and corruption providing the conditions that led to revolution.
So, while I’m wandering around Havana, I’ll imagine walking in the footsteps of bumbling British spies. Should be fun!
