"'Hay que inventar!' is a phrase Cubans use over and over, as their motto for how to survive and thrive on the island: You have to invent! Invention has become a foundation stone in a country that has lived in the interface between great material poverty and a highly educated population. This is how Cubans have kept their cars running for 50 years, how they put food on the table when the shops are empty, and how they build houses when neither space nor materials are available: they invent. This is a story about Havana, and how her inhabitants have re-invented their city according to their needs." - From the introduction written by Mira Kongstein
