The two hundred Caravanistas from North America each donated computers, or paid around $1,000 to go to Cuba, to help end the trade embargo, sanctions, and accusations about Cubas Human Rights violations.

The leadership advertises their showdown with the Feds in the name of Civil Disobedience. Of course the Feds win, and take away all the computers. The Caravanistas hear words of encouragement- to sit it out in a hunger strike until they get the computers back. This doesnt sit well with everyone, especially not with the outspoken Mark Plimsoll.

In this first-person account of Mark Plimsolls BILINGUAL participation on the tour, he adroitly describes the comedic confrontations with police, the FBI, professional protesters, star-crossed lovers, and U.S. Customs agents- and in Cuba, the sexual magnetism between people with money, and people without.
