Isla de la Juventud: tractors, 1970

"An all-girls' tractor driving school treated us to rides on their tractors. Cuban students wore uniforms, usually grey and blue, but these girls' uniforms included bright red pants. The visit was quite a revelation to us Americans. The women's liberation movement was in its early stages back home and we'd never seen anything like this school where teenage girls laughed and joked as they skillfully drove tractors around the courtyard."
