Organizer/AuthorLynette Chiang
World Traveler Lynette Chiang http://www.galfromdownunder.com presents her slideshow and book entitled 'The Handsomest Man in Cuba' http://www.galfromdownunder.com/cuba
- an apolitical, no-bucket-baths spared tale of what it is like to eat, drink and be cautiously merry among ordinary and not-so ordinary Cubans, as told by this Chinese-Aussie cyclist who can take almost anything that is flung at her - and almost everything is.

She gets caught 'sleeping with the enemy' by police; gets smacked between the eyes by a lecherous 'muchacho', survives a hellish boat ride with the World Worst Sailor.... and more.

Formerly published by Random House Australia, The USA edition features a foreword by acclaimed author and fellow adventurer The Metal Cowboy http://www.metalcowboy.com and a compelling narrative that 'you can't put down' say the Amazon reviews. - 'it'll save you the airfare and a US government fine'.

The show consists of 78 images of Cuba, Q&A, discussion, demonstration of the Oregon-made Bike Friday folding bike she's ridden for 7 years.
