It didn't even have working headlights. Almost no one had a working car. The whole yard was fenced to raise pigs to eat and he said the smell was unbelievable most of the time.
Well - I have no idea how long ago your brother went, but the houses we visited and stayed in were very nice. Cubans can now buy and sell their houses, can fix them up as they like and our "Casa particular" (B&B) was very nice.
