Isi artikelClimb into one of those stately 1950s Plymouth sedans at Havana's Plaza de San Francisco and head west, and you take a journey through Cuban history. Havana has 181 foreign embassies, more than Madrid, even if most are small posts whose diplomats down their mojitos and struggle to build close relationships with Cuban officials. Above all Cuba now has Venezuela's Mr Chavez. Yet he is a contingent asset: his aid will last only as long as his grip on power. Might offshore oil bring relief? At the end of January the Scarabeo 9, a deep-water rig built in Asia to get around the American embargo, appeared on the horizon off Miramar. In the next few weeks its operator, Spain's Repsol, will announce whether or not it has found oil in commercial quantities. But even if it has, the oil will be costly and difficult to extract. There is no obvious alternative to Raul's reforms. But the paternalist state produced an infantilised society, and as it retreats popular anger could easily mount unless living standards rise.
