Due to the extreme restrictions that Cubans live under, there is very little sense of digital age tropes in this country. You won’t be inundated with the blatant commercialism of other cities in the world that have been spoiled by the excesses of American pop culture. Cuba has been a closed society for more than 50 years, which in many ways has made it a country stuck in a specific period of time. As the U.S. continues to normalize relations with Cuba, that sense of unspoiled innocence and purity will gradually give way to more American­-style conventions, but for now, Cuba remains a very distinct, Old World country.
