Havana is covered in beaches and its beautiful waterfront is a prime source of tourists and visitors from all over the world. Furthermore, there are multiple other cities in Cuba, which are plentiful with Spanish architecture alongside the normal urban buildings of the cities (Encyclopedia of Historic Places, 2007). Examples of which include the cities of Santiago, Holguin and Trinidad (The World Factbook, 2017). Transportation between these cities is done mostly through roads as the rail system built between Baneful and Havana in 1837 was deteriorating after the revolution in 1959.

“It was a rich cream color, bright with nickel, swollen here and there in its monstrous length with triumphant hatboxes and supper-boxes and tool-boxes, and terraced with a labyrinth of windshields that mirrored a dozen suns. Sitting down behind many layers of glass in a sort of green leather conservatory we started to town.” (68). The color yellow is to symbolise wealth in the novel. This describes how lavish, eye catching and extravagant Gatsby’s car is and how it is meant to catch your attention when you look at it. It is the only car in the book that isn’t a dark color like black or blue in the book and it is custom painted a yellow color.
By having a safe and easy method of transportation roads and highways were built all over America. With the roads and highways built this results in many people buying cars because now they do not have to worry about their car taking damages from nature. For these cars built, Ford used the assembly line. Workers stood in place and assembled the parts as they went down a conveyor belt(Boyer 689). The people can now just drive their cars safely along the road only having to worry about other drivers.
For example, prior to the invention of the assembly line an Automobile was considered a luxury only for the rich. After Henry Ford invented the moving assembly line, middle class Americans were also able to purchase this commodity. Due to Henry Ford’s assembly line invention, factories in modern society have produced highly intelligent assembly lines. Ford’s creation has caused a reverberation throughout history and even in the 21st century. For instance, Ford’s own company, today, can create up to 605 cars in 10 hours.
I was taken out of the car and back to the officer when he asked if there were drugs in the car because he could smell them, shortly after he questioned my brother who handed him two joints and HTC pills. The officer gave my brother back his marijuana and continued with how they were looking for people who were smuggling drugs into the country from Mexico. Since my brother is a white male, he was let off with no warning or ticket, just a “have a good day sir”. Another white privilege I have experienced is when my family bought a new truck, although they do not have perfect credit they were still able to get financing and a low interest rate. Meanwhile my aunt who married a Mexican, even though they have the same credit score, received zero financing and an interest rate of over 20% for a car older than the one my family purchased.
Our walking tour continued the following morning, passing yet another plaza to admire how the morning light highlight the colonial church (name of the church). We visited a community art (what place) and bought some artwork as souvenirs as if it was our last chance to take a piece of souvenir. I also had the chance to ride a vintage pink Chevrolet. My private taxi driver took me on another historical tour, passing (what building) and other historical sights, and along the Malecon and the view from that side of the bay was great. My driver spoke very good English and learned something about something that I never thought of at that point – about the Cubanos.
Opponents argue that the embargo is only harming the people of Cuba rather than benefiting them and it does not affect the government as it intends. The Cuban people are simply isolated they lack the access to technology, medicine, affordable food and other goods. A report by the American Association for World Health found that doctors in Cuba have access to less than 50% of the drugs on the world market, and that food shortages led to a 33% drop in caloric intake between 1989 and 1993. The report stated, "It is our expert medical opinion that the US embargo has caused a significant rise in suffering-and even deaths-in Cuba." Proponents responded that the US is capable of only targeting the Cuban government and not to harm the people in
There are many things that American citizens take for granted every day. Gomez, and most other undocumented immigrants, could not drive legally and safely. DACA allowed him the simple benefit of being able to go places without fearing what could happen if he were pulled over by a cop. This meant that he was able to get to work, school, and any other place he wanted to go, with a feeling of security.
